I believe Veeam will do the job and loads of people use it here.
Veeam: Modern Data Protection
EDIT: There is a free version too!
Veeam Backup Free Edition for VMware and Hyper-V VMs (VeeamZIP)
I have a server with 7 Virtual Machines running on it.
What is the best way to back this up?
Is it possible to back up a server with running virtual machines on it (or do they need to be stopped?)
Or should each virtual machine server be performing its own backup.
At the moment just some shared files are being backed up to a external file server, which makes me wary if a virtual server was to fail or the server which hosts all the virtual servers was to fail.
Thanks for this. The machines are actually running in MSCVMM and not VMWare.
Would that still work as I can only see references saying it is for VMware and Hyper-V. Also does anyone have any idea of Pricing, as I could not easily find any prices advertised for it?
Can anyone please advise?
MSCVMM is still Hyper-V isn't it? Price on Veeam is negotiable (it was for us) and we got quite a good deal.
Edit: If you have System Center you could always use Data Protection Manager.

The actual hypervisor you are managing with MSCVMM is still Hyper-V though so any product that supports it will work.
Veeam is a no brainer for virtual backup, we use it for all our hyper-v hosts.
