zVT Pricing and Design Inquiry

Please complete the zVT design assessment form below. We will use the information in this form solely to create a draft zVT design for your reference. Please provide the most complete information that you can in the form, which will allow us to return the most accurate and meaningful zVT design recommendation possible, along with the associated pricing. The mainframe and tape control unit information will be used to help determine the size and scope of the zVT design. The physical tape and virtual tape capacity information will be used to appropriately size the storage repository requirement for the zVT.

We request only information related to your tape environment.

This is an Optica internal form, and none of this information will be shared outside of Optica.

* indicates a required field.
