Backup Virtual Tape Library option

Hi Experts,

I have seen, I have a license for Virtual Tape Library Unlimited Drive Option for Symantec Backup Exec 2012.

Can you explain me in detail what can I do with it ?

Below is Symantecs explanation.

When you install Backup Exec, support for every single-drive virtual tape library is included. The Virtual Tape Library Unlimited Drive Option enables support for all additional drives in each virtual tape library.

but what is a virtual tape library ?
Patrick BogersDatacenter platform engineer LindowsCommented:
Hi again,

To my understanding it says.
By installing BE you get free support for 1 backup device.
Since is it thinkable a server has more than one device you can use this license to support multiple backup devices.
