We are a small company (150 users) with about 6TB of data on a dozen VMware servers. We currently use Veeam for on-site backups to NAS (nightly) and tape for weekly off-site. We are considering moving to ExaGrid for both on-site and off-site, replacing the tape.

My question is: how vulnerable are we to losing everything...both the on-site and off-site ExaGrid data should the right creds be compromised?   It would be game over to  discover that all of the server data was gone and the backup files on both targets had been deleted as well.

Is this a legitimate concern?  The thought of it makes me want to keep the tape in place in addition to the off-site ExaGrid.
