Rapid Recovery isn't integrate directly with tape backup solutions. However, writing Archives to Tape using Tar can be done indirectly. Please see the steps below and suggested best practices.
* Do attempt to write an Archive to tape while the Archive is active. The data on tape will not be usable when restored.
* If writing a Continuous Archive to tape, do not delete the archive folder from disk when writing too tape has completed. Otherwise the next scheduled Archive will be a full export, not an incremental. Schedule Archives build off of existing data.
* If writing a Continuous Archive to tape, select an incremental backup in the 3rd party tape solution so it only backs up new data added to the Archive and not the full archive.
