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,

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.

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