Backup large Full backups to tape

Veeam Logoby Yanish » Sat Dec 28, 2013 5:30 pm

Question, If I have a veeam full backup of lets say 4TB. Can I back it up to tape? the largest tape on the market being LTO 6 and storing around 3.2TB.
Basically what I want to know is, can Veeam split the backup file betwen multiple tape cartridges or do I need to break down my backup to two smaller backups?

Thanks in advance
