My previous question covered disk-to-disk backup to reduce our backup window, and now I also need to take the disk backup and move it to tape. Is this something I can do with Networker and deduplicated backup?
I know that an ideal solution would be to replicate the Data Domain elsewhere, but we are one site only. Another Data Domain and datacenter space somewhere else is a bit too rich for us. So the new plan is to backup our storage over an iSCSI SAN to a Data Domain 600 using EMC Networker, then have Networker make full backups from Data Domain (not the live data) to tape on a weekly basis. This should give us a fast backup, but allow for offsite disaster recovery.
So can this be done with Networker? If not, is there an alternative?
