Veeam announces fifth Backup & Replication v7 feature!

Veeam has announced their fifth feature for version 7 on Backup & Replication: Archive to tape! Everyone thinks tape is dead but it seems Veeam received this request a lot so they added a new tool for it. Archive to Tape in Veeam Backup & Replication v7 supports virtual tape libraries (VTLs), tape libraries and standalone drives.

Veeam v7 fifth feature

  • Backups to tape gives you the ability to archive Veeam backups produced by specific jobs to tape, or you can choose to archive entire backup repositories to tape.
  • Files to tape gives you an easy-to-use wizard that allows you to add specific files from Windows or Linux servers (virtual or physical) to tape.
  • Restoring backups from tape gives you the same possibilities as when you recover from disk backups.
  • Restoring files from tape comes with the same ease-of-use you expect from Veeam. You can recover data to its original location or to another server.
