Has anyone here ever configure or use Veeam to write to tape library ?
I’m using Veeam Backup & Replication 188.8.131.527 and also the existing legacy Symantec Backup Exec 2012 installed on the same physical server in my HQ site to write all of the Veeam Backup job copy to HP LTO Tape library for Disaster recovery purpose.
So the data flow is like this:
VMware VM ]---Backup by VBR --> Data Centre backup repository server ]--- Backup copy job by VBR --> Head Office backup / media server ]--- write to tape by BE --> tape drive sent offsite.
Therefore in the event of disaster strikes the Data Centre, we can rebuild the environment by reversing the process above.
I wonder if Veeam Backup and Replication v8.0 can simplify the process above or can actually write to tape so that I can decommission Symantec Backup Exec 2012 fully ?
Any kind of suggestion to simplify the above process would be greatly appreciated.
