Veeam Backup & Replication and Tape Automation

The Role of Tape Automation

Many businesses simply perform disk-to-disk backups and have no off-site data protection, leaving the business vulnerable to data loss from fire, flood, virus attack or data theft.

Managing data growth within virtual environments is another major headache for IT administrators.  Greater than 95% of data is never access 6 months from creation, businesses can effectively manage data growth and reduce storage costs by archiving a small percentage of this data each month.

Build your secure disaster recovery solution

Within a virtualised environment data can change rapidly and needs to be backed up frequently, the disk storage required to store these backups can grow very quickly. This may impact the performance of the virtual environment and accelerate the need to purchase more storage. To avoid this situation occurring, a disk-to-disk-to-tape backup process should be adopted. The data to be protected is first backed up to disk (primary backup) and then the newly created backup files are backed up to tape (secondary backup). Additional backup copies may also be performed for off-site data storage or compliance requirements.

LTO tape provides storage capacities up to 30TB (LTO-8 compressed) on a single data cartridge
and is the best and most affordable solution to securely store large volumes of data offsite.
