Why backup your libraries to virtual tape instead of SAVF?

If SAVF files can be FTP'd to anywhere, why is virtual tape necessary? The answer: Many libraries versus just one.

Why backup your libraries to a virtual tape drive when you can use a save file (SAVF)? Both can be FTP'd anywhere in the world onto any platform?
The major reason is that you can save MANY libraries using one save command to a virtual tape and only ONE library per save command to a Save File.
