True for the license that is included with the Solaris server edition.

The answer for the question is the TurboPak. Only that one allows
the parallel use of more than one tape drive. As for the other question,
Legato Networker aka Solstice Backup does not currently allow backing
up one filesystem to more than one tape drive. If you have separate filesystems
they will be backed up concurrently if you set the options for the client
(default is 4, only available in "details mode") and the server correctly.
If you want to split one filesystem, you can play with a backup script.
I did a Perl script that splits Oracle raw disks out to separate
save commands. (save is the command that runs the client side of the backup.)
Do a "man save" to see what it does.
