Do any of you leverage the cloud for storage, and if so, what is your approach to backups?
We are reviewing our backup strategy, in particular how to approach backing up the native SQL backups. Currently we perform SQL backups (full and t-log) to disk. At night we backup the SQL backups to tape using a product called ArcServe. ArcServe is having to backup over 7TB of backups nightly. We are wanting to leverage the cloud and find an approach where the SQL backups can be backed-up to the cloud, either using some appliance or third-party software. We would also like to avoid placing agents on our SQL Servers, which is a requirement of DPM.
