DIY Backup Solution

Hi experts, i am seeking some advise on how to proceed with an onsite/offsite solution to backup our server data.  now i have an idea but i am looking for another set of "eyes" to examine the scenario.

We have two sites with a 10GB connection between them.  I currently am using Netbackup 7.1 and 6.5.6 to backup up files locally and then send tapes to Iron Mountain.  i hope to use the same backup software and create a storage site using a bunch of NAS boxes that would act as the location of the backups.  Here is what i am thinking to build this out

1. Use DFS on windows servers and setup deduplication on server 2012 for the file servers
2. use netbackup to copy all of the snapshots to the remote keeping with the same schedule of weeklys and monthly fulls ( weeklys expire every 5 weeks and monthlys every 13 months)

what would you differently?

That sounds like a great plan actually.  You have redundancy and the right software and equipment to do it with a large enough pipe sounds like.  I would run with it.

I assume you mean 10Gbit link?

Is this already used for something and how much bandwidth is still available for you?

If there is enough capacity in the pipe and you are happy with your current RPO/RTO, as Esteban said go run with it!

Gerald thank you.  The assumption is that he means a 10 Gbit link.  LOL!

Esteban, sometimes it's easy to guess from the context but not always
