Veeam archive in cloud VTL vs Scale Out Rep

Post by sdelacruz »

I am looking to move away from tape archiving as it has become a nightmare to archive them and sending them offsite.
I have 30 daily jobs and I have a retention of 30 days on disk. Every first Saturday of the Month I move the veeam backups files to tape and have a retention of 1 year on most of my jobs and 7 years in 5 of my larger backups.
I also have Veeam Office365 backup files moving to tape.
I am using approximately 16 TB of tape to store all veeam backups.

I was looking into using AWS as my offsite repository but I am not sure either to use cloud VTL or Scale out Rep. Which are the pros and cons?
What are your recommendations and which do you think will cost me less?

VTL is largely a no go even just because it will require periodic fulls shipped and stored in Amazon.
Scale-out repository is the way to go!
