BE 2012 - backup to disk on server A, replicate to tape on server B - how?
I have two physical servers, lets call them "DISK server" and "TAPE server". One has a lot of local disk space, the other has a tape library.
I want to backup-to-disk all my Windows and vSphere clients to "DISK server" and keep the data there for 1 week. After a backup job has completed, I want to replicate the finished job to tape library storage on "TAPE server" and keep it there for 10 weeks.
I am not concerned with deduplication and/or optimizing. If possible, I prefer not to use it at all.
Can this be done simply ? Like install BE 2012 Server on my "DISK server" and install some kind of remote media agent on "TAPE server" which will then allow me to use both types of storages from the console on "DISK server" ?
If this does not work, would it work by installing a full BE 2012 Server install on both my servers? (This is my current situation, but I can't get to see the tape library from TAPE server on my DISK server, so I cannot replicate a backup job)
Do I really need a CASO for this ? I mean, I don't want to manage multiple servers, I simply want to use two types of storage, each connected to a different physical server.
(If you wonder "why not connect the tape and disk storage to one server:" these servers are located in a different DC, for redundancy purposes)
Thanks all for your feedback !
