Restoring Deduplicated Data From Tape
I'm just getting to grips with BE2012 and have a question about using the duplicate to tape option.
Currently we back up our data to a Deduplication drive on the Backup server, we do this for both full and incremental backups. I would like to add a stage to our backups that duplicates the full backup to tape once a month for archiving.
My question is this: if we had a major hardware failure and lost the backup server along with the Deduplication Store and Database, would the archive which is now on tape be recoverable without the original Backup server?
Apologies if this is not very clear.
