We have a D2D2T solution for backup currently. The tape backup runs only for offsite storage and it keeps data for up to 3 months. The backup runs on a Dell TL 2000 PowerVault with LTO3 tapes. Considering that it's pretty old, the performance degraded significantly, failing quite a bit lately. My first option would be to remove the tape backup all together but from my research, it still looks like the most feasible option out there. Is this accurate? Could the cloud be a solution yet? How about some kind of removable drives that can be stored somewhere? As of now, there are around 5TB that need to be stored. Internet connection is at 20Mb but it might go up to 50 in the near future.
Thank you for your help!
