Hi,

A hypothectical question.....

If a BUR solution based around EMC Networker and DataDomain units required a physical tape capability, i.e. to send physical tapes to offsite storage, which software would manage/control the output of backup data to those tapes; would it be Networker or DataDomain Replicator?

(Networker would be required to backup to the DataDomain units regardless in the above scenario)

TIA.

Thanks.  It made sense that Networker would still be involve but I couldn't find anywhere that clearly stated as such in that dual format scenario, or whether the ongoing copy to tape was purely under the remit of the DDs.

the DD itself can not do any backups without networker so if you have some backups or jobs moving data to tape it is managed by networker
