Feature Request – Backup to multiple destination

Post by Riyaz.Hussain »

All the users who use NAS as their backup destination are covered with the help of RAID technology (until unless they use JBOD) which protects their data in case of a disk failure however this is not the case with the users who uses USB drives. Most of these USB drive users use 2 USB drives to back up their data to ensure that they are safe in case of one USB drive fails.

If a feature which helps the users to run a single job with 2 backup destinations (Source->USB HDD 1->USB HDD 2) then this would reduce the amount of work and pain an enduser has to take to ensure his data protection.

Yes, your scenario makes perfect sense. What about using Veeam B&R repository and then backup copy jobs to address this scenario? You can create Veeam backup repository at this NAS device and then leverage full power of Veeam B&R server to protect these backups, including WAN acceleration for offsite backup over slow links.

This suggestion is purely in perspective of a business user who's not technical and would not even know what and how to use B&R. This is what is being done by most of my know business users in the enterprise segment.

Got it, I was just suggesting existing ways of solving this use case.
