EMC on Wednesday acquired Bus-Tech, a privately held company that provides virtual tape library technologies.

The price of the Bus-Tech purchase wasn't disclosed. In a nutshell, Bus-Tech's technology (right) allows storage systems to store and acquire backup data that's on tape.

EMC said in a statement that the plan is to take Bus-Tech and put it in its backup recovery systems division.

According to the company, the end goal is to migrate mainframe users from tape infrastructure to virtual tape and data deduplication technologies.

Bus-Tech and EMC have been partners since 2004.
