Configuring a tape backup job

Now that you have a disk-based backup job configured, it's time to copy that backup to tape media.


It it also possible to copy from one disk-based repository to another, and then in turn, copy that to tape, and daisy-chain those jobs to each other to automate tiered backup chains.

This is a very easy thing to set up; all you need is a tape device that is available on a physical server running the Veeam Backup & Replication server. It is also possible to use Virtual Tape Libraries that act as physical tape devices inside a Virtual Machine.
