Windows Tape Library Emulator



  • I'm looking for a tape library and drive emulator for Windows, preferable one that is emulating an SAS / SCSI interface. There used to be a tool called VMCE (Virtual Media Changer Emulator), but it doesn't seem to be available anymore.

    I'm not looking for any VTL solution but for something that just fakes an robotic autoloader like the Overland Neo series (which sells under various names, Tandberg for example) . Windows is a hard requirement in this case.

    I'm planning to write a little how-to where a tape lib is involved and I don't want to use my real one at work 😉

    Like others (thanks for REF @Danp !!) pointed out we can help. VTL isn't free but I can manage a NFR license for you. If you have something to offer we can even give away a SDK so you'll write own / modify existing VTL plug-in for StarWind to do something. Do you remember C/C++? 😉

    P.S. SyncSort did exactly this as they OEM our VTL and iSCSI engine for tapes.



  • Love you guys 😉

    C? Maybe I should just **call_you_back? 🙂
