I’d strongly suggest not making decisions today based on what vendors tell you they “will be able to do” in the future.   This is called vaporware because even if the vendor truly has plans to make it so the day they tell you about it, more often than not, it does not happen on the timeline they say and frequently not at all.    Planning should be based on what is actually available in vendor products the day you order them rather than future “updates”.

What's the primary purpose of replicating data off-site? DR or long term retention? If it's latter, then you would try CloudBoost, which is fully integrated with Avamar/NW/NBU today. It allows backup data to be sent to public/private service providers.

And next year, DD will have a feature called Cloud Tiering. DD will be able to natively use blob storage on cloud as an extension and based on the defined policies, data will be moved to cloud tier in deduplicated form (no need to rehyradate and dedupe again), regardless of the backup software being used.

Yes you're right, we're researching all options one being to replicate our existing DD units to a cloud provider. We're kind of stuck with them based on their original cost and the fact that they don't talk to other storage units, though purchasing another DD just costs too much. Actifio sounds like an interesting option which I'll read up on. Thanks so much for the info.
