We use SLP for our backups and copies. We create our original backups to a 
dd670 (2 weeks) and then spin off a copy to our remote dd670 with a different 
retention period (5 weeks). 

The SLP policy allows you to create a second copy to a different destintation 
right after your backups has completed. That way you have two copies of your 
data incase your primary site becomes disabled. If you are wanting to only have 
it on one device at a time, then the VAULT portion of Symantec will allow you 
to go back a certain amount of time and create a copy on the other destination.

You could look into a ddArchiver from data domain. this will move data from an 
active tier to an archive tier within the same dedupe appliance and your data 
is on a less expensive tier of disk for the longer term.
