End Point Backup - Then to tape using Standard - 1 Server

Post by ChrisBailey » Jul 06, 2017 12:56 pm

Bit of a strange situation here, but here we go.

I am going to be setting up a new server - bare metal - Windows. This is a smaller location, they will only have a single physical server but require backup to tape. I want to use Veeam if at all possible, but it definitely brings about some challenges being a single server.

My thought, not sure this is possible.

Veeam End Point - installed on the server - local repository for backups
Veeam Standard - also installed on the local server - used to do tape jobs for the End Point backup files.

It may not be possible, but I really want to use Veeam.

Can anyone let me know if the configuration above makes sense?

It's possible, but you will need at least Enterprise edition. With standard edition, files to tape job (archiving EP backup to tapes) is the only option for you. Thanks.
