I need help on this scenario...
Retention is 5 weeks and 12 months
what we are planning to do:
maintain 1 week retention localy (disk)
4 weeks offsite preferably to tape
12 months offsite preferably to tape
We have 4 sites say A,B,C and D... one of the site which is site D where-in our target repository for backup copy jobs from the 3 sites A,B and C are located.
sites a,b,c will have a local copy with a retention of 7 days
sites a,b,c will have a backup copy going to site D on a daily basis after the backup window on the local copy finish.
site a,b,c will have its own B&R server which is acting as a proxy and repository. on site d will also have the same except with the addition of the backup copy repository from each site plus the tape server function.
We want to have a tape out of the backup copy at site D. The retention is 5 week and 12 months. Also to save as much disk space on site D
appreciate your feedback
