Correct, as long as you create a Scale-Out Backup Repository, adding repositories A and B as its extents, and configure performance policy. Thanks.

hi papali,

keep in mind:
- with "License Enterprise" you can setup only 3 Extent, with "License Enterprise Plus" unlimited Extents.
- SOBR not support backup of configuration backup on extent target.
- When set up new SOBR in Extents section wizard --> Advanced use "Use per-VM backup file"
- When set up SOBR set "performance" dedicate two o more extents for FULL backup.

check this guide "Deep look at SOBR" ;)

If I understand well:
1. the full backup drive must always be online, right?
2. Before I make the backup with a BEWS, to file system level, not vm, and I did a full backup on a external disk on Saturday and I took it off-site and incrementals backups on rotating external drives during the week, I want to reproduce this logic with Veeam, its possible?
3. Veeam if it does not find the disk with the fullbackup it makes me another full on the weekly discs?

Thanks

You cannot reproduce the same logic with Veeam B&R, but you can have rotated drives with a separate backup chain (full + incrementals) produced by the backup copy job.

In addition to the primary backup on a secondary storage, I have configured a backup copy on SoBR with 3 external disks that change each week, configured with "Use backup file for VMs".
I think this configuration will fit my needs.
Thank you all for your comments, suggestions!

Good Weekend!

Please note that scale-out backup repositories do not support rotated drives. Rotated drives setting on the extents is simply ignored.
