Backup Exec 2012 - Sythentic backup questions

Hello guys,

we are lookup for the best practice sythentic backup.

We have:
1 x ESX 5.1 Server with 2TB data (VMs)
1 x Symantec 2012 with Advanced Disk-based Backup Option
6 x 3TB Buffalow NAS devices

1 x NAS will be our static B2D device

We create a sythentic backup every 1st month.
And the rest of the month incremental backups.

5 x NAS will be our removable offside devices (monday - friday).
One duplicate job will copy the backups from the static nas to the removable devices.

What do you think ?

Thank you,

So, are you saying you will have a NAS device that someone will carry offsite? If so, will this be daily, weekly, etc?

Daily. Every weekday, from monday to friday.

Ideally, it would be nice if you had an offsite location you could just replicate data to although I know many smaller companies do not have that option. I have worked for companies where someone takes tapes home every night, so the fact you are using a NAS is much more reliable. I think this would be fine.
