I’m brand new to UrBackup, and generally ignorant of all but the simplest backup platforms, but hopeful.
Our organization has a (very sensible) requirement to incorporate offline, offsite copies in our backup strategy for about 150TB across 20 linux servers. Much of this data is static and can be identified, tarred+gzipped to a mess of HDDs in a file cabinet. But a significant amount, say 30TB (and growing), requires some kind of scheme for rotating media offline on a tolerable loss frequency (say weekly). We’d also like to do this without incurring cloud costs since our LAN is free and we have the physical HDDs on hand.
I imagine it would be easy if I could tell UrBackup to stop after the first full backups are done, then remove my storage backend (say a few drives RAID’d or LV’d together) while saying “that’s full backup v1”, and then tell UrBackup “we’re good, ignore that you no longer find v1 files on the storage, just go ahead and write differentials from v1”, and forever rotate differential-only drives.
Is this something that can be done with UrBackup, e.g. something like the old tape backup systems?
Apologies if I’m not using appropriate jargon (or seeing an obvious solution in the docs or settings since I don’t know the jargon).
