Moving off TAPE

I have  17 Proliant servers with internal Tape Drives. I am researching moving off tape. We currently use CA Arcserve. CA their software is "hardware agnostic" therefore they support all HP solutions (they say)


I am starting into D2D     but understand that I will not be able to archive offsite.......So this then leads into having equipment of some sort located in an offsite location with a highspeeed link to the remote location.

I have  this option...we have a new secure building miles away with fiber linking us.


This entire study could lead me into formulating a full blown Disaster recovery solution..... I am wondering if there would be a multistep approach that would implement things in steps that , in the end,  would permit a DR solution to be implemented onto of,  or supported by ,  the previous steps   

I guess  what  I am  thinking is,  it  would be nice to see the equipment  that we invest in as we move off tape to still be supported as integral parts of what could be in its final form...... a DR solution


I appreciate feedback on this
