Calculating tape requirements

Post by gingerdazza » Jun 05, 2017 10:46 am

Hi. I'd love some assistance in determining what tape setup would meet the following:

Backup full size is 10TB
We run daily incremental backups which equal around 400GB
Would like to keep 7 daily, 4 weekly and 3 monthly backup copy jobs on tape

How would I go about sizing the tapes/drive?
