I have the AWS Virtual Tape Library working. Just wondering about best practice to avoid the excessive cost.
I'm mainly looking at:
* Tape size in order to lessen the amount of data retrieved when pulling tapes back
* How to use the libraries efficiently in order to archive tapes properly
Do any of you have examples of how this is configured? I am just looking to put 12 months worth for each media setup. I'd ideally like to push each tape to archive after each monthly run in order to get the glacier prices. We don't tend to restore much from older backups, so that isn't a concern.
