I have VBR 8 at my main site, works great. Using a single CIFS NAS repository.
I also have a standalone Windows 2012 server offsite that is just a simple file server, with about 3TB of data. Currently using BackupExec, and only able to really hold 2 months of full and daily incremental before all my backup DAS is used up.
What I would like to implement is forever-incremental backups, which I guess uses synthetic full backup technology. BackupExec synthetic full option is costly, as is their duplication option. So, this is really causing headaches to backup 3TB. Full backups take about 16 hours to DAS RAID array. Offsite backups are almost impossible for me right now.
Wondering if VEB would help? Can I direct the remote VEB to my main site repository (over VPN/firewall punches), seed the initial full backup, then perform forever-incrementals over the Internet?
Thanks, looks like a great product.
