Commercial and Open-Source Applications

Among the many major commercial backup application players are Veeam, Commvault, Veritas, Dell/EMC Networker, and IBM Spectrum Protect. There are many more, but these are the names often found in the top five for commercial “application-based” backup.

There are also a handful of open source application-based backup and recovery products supported by Spectra libraries, such as Amanda Community Edition (by Zmanda), Bacula and Bareos (a derivative of Bacula). These solutions tend to differentiate themselves by providing non-proprietary formats and are available as free “community edition” software. Zmanda and Bacula also offer commercial versions of their software typically referred to as “Enterprise Edition” which are likewise supported by Spectra.

The T950 tape library offers support for all major backup applications, industry-standard operating systems and industry-standard software packages. Transform your organization with the addition of this well-built and impressive library that will help you protect your data and integrate with most channel interfaces and networking protocols.
