What is Compass VTL
Cobalt Iron delivers a software-defined VTL function that is fully integrated into its Compass SaaS platform. Unlike any other VTL solution, Compass VTL is a software-enabled feature that is directly integrated within an end-to-end data protection solution. Compass VTL is not a stand-alone VTL but a unique feature that integrates VTL workloads into the core enterprise backup.
With Compass VTL, organizations can deploy a single, unified solution that unleashes data from traditional physical and virtual tape data silos all while modernizing environments which require tape resources for backup and recovery.

IBM I / iSeries
Compass VTL brings special value for IBMi/iSeries users. It automates IBMi/iSeries DR operations, introduces transparent cloud connectivity, and integrates IBMi/iSeries backup with other enterprise data-protection operations — all while maintaining familiar IBMi/iSeries backup functions.
Multi-tenant VTL Workloads
Compass VTL provides support for multi-tenant VTL workloads on a single Accelerator. This provides both the separation of work- loads and data but also the ability to select individual tenants or workloads to be 2nd site replicated and recoverable.
