Vault backups Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Replicate backups to the same or different media type using the Vault tab in ZMC
Retain most recent backups in the Staging Area with older backups offsite either in the Cloud or on tapes
Use multiple backup sets.
For Example, run daily backups to disk in one backup set and weekly or monthly full backups to tape or cloud in another. Please note that consideration should be made when backing up the same object–directory/application/database–from two different backup sets. Interaction may occur whereby an incremental backup in one backup set may end up being based on a full backup in another backup set.
Retain most recent backups in the Staging Area – Manually set Staging Area thresholds
Regularly Archive tapes for longer retention
