    We're going with Veeam for the majority of our VMWare based backups, however to get the Veeam stuff to tape and to backup a few physical servers and some mac infrastructure we're looking to also use a Backup Exec 2010 R2 or CA ArcServe install

    just finished installing dpm on my DC, which while it was a lot of hops to get it installed, seams to run well now.

    we use old Backup exec for the 6tb san to the tape loader and will be using dpm to back the stuff up from the vmware servers running from the 3tb dell san.

    How do we buy DPM 2010? Is it only available as part of System Center, or can it be bought separately?

    This for an environment with just 2 servers, they only need scheduled file backup to NAS with automatic reusing of old media.

    I'm trialling ARCserve, It'll do the job, but something simpler and cheaper would be better.

    Scripted Windows Backup is probably just what I need for a small setup I look after. Could you provide any info or links on how to get it going?

    I'd ideally need monthly and weekly full backups with daily incremental, all to NAS, overwriting old media when appropriate. Surely this could be done with Windows Backup, scheduled jobs and scripts.

    Thanks.

    Backup Assist is pretty good. Pretty basic stuff that's really easy to setup.

    Same here, Veeam for 30 days of rollbacks on disk then weekly archive to LTO-5 via Backup Exec

    What problems did you have with it? My new physical server (which will be a DC) will be the machine backing up the VMs, and I want to try DPM 2010 first before paying a big chunk of cash for Backup Exec with the virtual hooks, so if there's any advice to give, please let me know!
