Tape Backup Jobs

The main backup purpose is to protect your data against disasters and failures. Having only one copy of a backup file does not provide the necessary level of safety. To build a successful data protection and disaster recovery plan, you must have two different types of media to store copies of your data, for example, disk storage and tape.

To learn more about the 3-2-1 backup strategy, see the Veeam Blog article How to follow the 3-2-1 backup rule with Veeam Backup & Replication.
