Possible new Tape feature

Everything about backing up to tape

Possible new Tape feature

Veeam Logoby brianca » Tue Jun 21, 2016 6:12 pm

I currently have a scenario that could be beneficial if Veeam had the capabilities to write directly to tape. Basically, having tape as a repository instead of just a secondary backup location.

Could this possible be a addition or a feature in Veeam for future releases?

Thanks

Hello and welcome to the community Brian,

Veeam B&R follows disk to disk to tape approach, where tape is used for long term archiving and as a secondary destination. Thanks for sharing your request – its highly appreciated!

So could there be a feature for Veeam B&R in the future that would allow a backup to be configured to write directly to tape? Or will Veeam always be a disk to disk to tape approach?

Thanks

Never say never, but priorities are given to the features (and feature requests) that fall under definition of the best practices. Thanks.
