Yes it is possible. It is not mandatory to have a tape drive attached to the server to install BE. You can use backup to disk to save your backups to local hard disk.

BE 2010 works at file level and BESR works at block level.

BESR is mainly designed for disaster recovery. You can perform a Bare Metal Restore with that to any hardware which is supported by OS. Whereas BE is mainly designed for backups and restores.
