Re: Backups?

And there was me feeling slightly old-skool buying an LTO drive and a box of tapes back in December to backup my Veeam online backup. As an SMB, it's a cheap, efficient solution to getting offline backups that are air-gapped from NotPetya and this sort of thing and it gives the junior a nice boring task each day. Re the remark about Backup Exec - I feel your pain; Veeam handles tape jobs beautifully (it's effectively just copying the online one to the tape) in comparison and it was a snap to set up.

Funnily enough, it took a bit of explanation to the various suppliers I contacted that yes, I really did want tape, and no, I didn't see the value in spending the same as it eventually cost each month to have another online copy in a DC somewhere.
