Corect. Please see Helpcenter article for details.1) How can this be worked in Veeam? I assume I start by adding a tape server?
You can copy the whole backup repository to tape if you specify repository as a source.Can the backup to tape job accomplish this?
No, that will move the whole repo containment to tape. May I ask you what backup mode do you use (incremental, reverse-incremental, forever-forward)?Will it allow me to say, move everything over to tape except for the past 2 weeks?
No, it won't.Will it then remove the existing backups off the physical array for me?
Well, tapes of such capacity are not commercially available so you'll need to use several tapes. Please also check this compatbility list.2) If #1 can be done, what is out there for hardware solutions? Am I simply OK to purchase a device like above? I'm looking to archive approx. 10TB of data to tape. Is there a tape that will hold all of this, or will it have to be spread out?
It's not recommended to delete restore points manually. The best method would be to specify shorter retention policy and let it delete old restore points automatically.If Veeam won't remove the existing backups after I've moved them to tape, do I simply manually delete them from Windows Explorer?
Good, then you can use that one.Also, HP has Tape Drives available that look like they'll do 15TB

As soon as I lower retention, how fast will Veeam remove restore points?
Will I be able to briefly set retention to 1, wait for Veeam to clear, and set it back to 30?
