We been instructed to change our environment from a tape library system to a ejectable tape. We can fit a set of our most critical data on a single LTO-8 tape, and have it changed daily by our Colo. The tape library will be maintained for the “nice to have” data.
The basic goal is to be able to restore critical data with nothing remaining of the VEEAM install but a tape and a printed copy of the encryption password.
To table top this: We would like to have a single daily tape that has all of our incremental and synthetic fulls written to it. There is plenty of room for this as the existing repo has only 6.4TB used in it. The whole repo directory simple needs moved to tape daily when the job is complete.
Q1: Is the basic goal here achievable?
Q2: What type of tape job can ensure that both the increments and the synthetic fulls make it onto every days tapes?
