Re: Backup Directly to Tape

Post by Poweruser » Jan 17, 2019 7:46 pm

we dont want any disk backup, just tape only!
yes disk is usefull but it is too expensive to keep all vms there and at least 2 times during backup.
especially if there are 2 different jobs for the same vms.

1 offline backup 1 online vss backup job.
nearly same data, but wasting double hdd space.
but go to different tapes.
so i want to keep one series there only.

Good day!
We also really need the function for direct backup from the RMAN plugin - to the tape library. We do not have extra space to store backups on disks. Tell me please, should we wait for such a function or switch to software from another vendor?

Hi Ulan,

We hope you understand we cannot comment on future release plans, product roadmaps, and timelines, however, in this particular situation I can mention that there are no short-term implementation plans for "direct RMAN to tape" functionality.

Regards,
Fedor

Hi Babak,

No, currently there is no way to send backup directly to tape. Please review the above posts for additional information.

Thanks
