The VMs are currently backed up to CIFS in one location and then copy jobs run to copy to CIFS in another physical location. We have a requirement to backup to tape for offsite storage in a third location. Is anyone doing something similar? Would you just backup the CIFS shares or have another Veeam job of some sort to backup to tape?
We have a retention policy of 56 and some of the jobs grow to more than 14TB in total. We have a total of 26 CIFS repositories.
