Tape backup of SQL transaction logs (VLB)

Veeam Logoby ICarter » Tue Jan 27, 2015 8:16 am

We've recently started evaluating backing up our SQL transactions logs using Veeam which creates VLB files. I notice from the documentation (and our experience) that VLB files are excluded from tape backup. Is it likely that in the future they will be included? It's great we can recover down to a 15 minute granuality when the data is in the repository, but it would be equally nice to be able to do this when pulling an older archive back off tape rather than dropping back to the full/incremental recovery point. It would also be nice to have a copy of the log backups on tape from a DR point of view.

Cheers, Ian

For now you can probably stick to file to copy job and archive to tape mediums log backups along with backups they depend on. Thanks.
