our environment is an Hyper-V cluster made of 4 nodes + a SAN connected through a fiber switch, and a physical "backup server" that is a dell poweredge with a lot of disks.
At the moment veeam 8 is installed on a VM in cluster and it is performing backups on a shared volume of the backup server. Now we'd like to add the tape library to the environment for offsite backup location, and configure the appropriate retentions in Veeam. The question is: which machine should the tape be connected to, and using which kind of connection? (scsi, iscsi,....). I obviosuly need this connection to be affordable and to minimize network utilization.
