Virtually Tape

Backup Advanced 8.0 is the first software backup product I've tested that supports VTL out of the box. VTL lets you set aside a portion of hard-disk drive to emulate tape, so you can back up data using fast disk-to-disk backups and later copy from the VTL to tape. The VTL supports virtual tape arrays up to 1 million GB and grows as you need it.
