I don't you can use cloud storage as a copypool so that would mean you are placing your primarypool in the cloud and limiting (in an extreme way) your restore performance.
It is fast enough for archival purposes (if you set it up correctly and have enough of a local buffering pool and bandwith) and you can but backup data in but getting backup data out fast enough to meet any serious SLA? Hmm...I would look closely into that and start with a very small POC, that's the thing with cloud storage, you can actually do that fairly easy. I wouldn't use cloud based storage for TSM for anything other than a replacement for archive like data with a low retrieve rate. If you want to get rid of tape and not invest in setting up your own offsite setup I'm sure there are plenty of electronic-vaulting solutions like the ones we offer you can simply plug into. Just make sure your DR plan is compatible with these solutions. It's can get complicated, it's all connected.
