Hi. I currently install a Overland NeoS T24 tape appliance to my environment. I already have a disk backup configured via Veeam which I've been using for the past 1.5 years.
All my virtual servers are backed up to disk via Veeam through various schedules depending on their importance. For example, the file server is backed up daily with 60 restore points.
My dilemma is regarding scheduling backups to tape or more specifically, if I should do it daily, weekly or monthly. I would like to utilize Tape backup primarily for archival purposes which is why, at the moment, I am thinking of doing only monthly backups with a 1 year retention. I was hoping to get some insight into which route to take or if anyone is doing the same type of tape backup in which it is only done monthly.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
