We currently use Veeam with onsite and offsite backups and it works very well for us.
I know they have Immutable Storage and other options out there that probably work very well.
But wanted to put into place a simple air gapped option for weekly backups.
In chatting with a former coworker – They purchase 12 2Tb internal hard drives – (One for each week -- three month rotation)
Have a PC with Hotswap drive bay. A script runs every Monday to copy  back ups / snapshots / etc to bitlocker encrypted drive.
When complete – script starts beeping the internal speaker  to remove the drive.
For less than 1K they have a simple elegant but somewhat manual process that provides for a simple backup air gapped solution.
Any thoughts  -- alternative – concerns – other
Let me know
