We currently create replicas of our VMware VM's instead of backups and are considering implementing back up to tape. I am having trouble finding out whether this is an optimal set up and whether transitioning to backups would be a better idea? Can anyone help?

Hello. Recommended approach is to have backups besides replicas as in case of data corruption, corrupted data will be replicated to the remote VM. You need to perform regular backup of VM before copying the backup to tape. Thanks!
