Backing up to tape

Post by DXS_Matt »

Hey everyone, we have a customer of ours who is looking at a large VM Clustered infrastructure, and because of sarbanes oxley requirements, they need to have tapes stored at a DR site as they don't have offsite replication yet.

Is it possible for Veeam to take a backup onto our dedicated backup san, and then through a scheduled job, or something similar (as I know it doesn't support this natively) offload them to tape? I don't want to delete the backups that we have on the backup san, but do want to copy full and possibly incrementals to tape.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Matt, this is exactly how most customers who have to have tape backups are doing this today. You can simply use post-job script (see advanced Veeam job settigs) to make this happen automatically on certain days of week.
