Surebackup over tape

Post by crackocain »

Hello

I want to ask surebackup is supported on tape backups?
Customer wants "backup can not be deleted" and "backup recoverability" So WORM tape is the option. Can we use surebackup in tape jobs?

Thank you.

Hi Mehmet,

There is no such possibility but what about to run SureBackup job using backups stored on the primary storage?

Maybe you could try to perform test restores of VM from tape to infrastructure to a new location instead?

Thanks!

True but in ransomware attack worm tape backups is critical this situation. So if tapes are corrupted or something surebackup is great way to find it.

Could you add feature request for this?
