Backup to the cloud!

Post by marcgijsman » 05 Aug 2014, 12:21


We are using DPM 2012 for backup. For long term retention we are looking at firestreamer VTL.
We would like to store the data in the Cloud (Azure). Does anyone have experience with storing the files in the Cloud??

Marc, it appears that your question is generic one and doesn't directly relate to Firestreamer. You may want to re-post it to a dedicated Azure forum where you may get more meaningful replies. Firestreamer's .fsrm files are normal files from any standpoint. Once unloaded from the tape library, they can be backed up (copied) to a cloud or elsewhere.
Best regards,
