The storageTek VSM or Virtual Storage Manager provides a managed disk buffer between the mainframe servers and the tape library system. Instead of writing directly to a physical drive, mainframes read and write to virtual drives created and maintained by VSM. This enables a utilization of higher drives and cartridges all while working to lower your storage costs.
