Backup from iscsi to a tape library


I have a NVR (model SRN 4000 of samsung) with 45 TB ocupped in internal disks. I want to backup this data toward external storage. I don't have space in other disks, so backup to tape could be an option.

This NVR has an iscsi interface. Also, I have a tape library connected to FC SAN.

The question is:
How to backup data from the NVR to the tape library ? It is possible connect a tape library using iscsi ? Another option ?
Please, provide me any clue according your experience.

This question should be asked to samsung ...


IMHO your only option is to read the data from the device and write to tape using a backup software running on another server, as long as your device cannot handle tape backups.

Hope this helps!
