Can anyone recommend backup software for me please? We currently use BackupExec v9. I'm planning a new server install (2008 R2 running on Hyper-V, probably) and want to overhaul the backup system. I can upgrade BE or go with something else.
EDIT: Should mention that I'd like to move away from using tapes and envisage backing up to a NAS in another building in addition to using removeable HDDs for the offsite element so software would need to be able to handle this.

Upgrade to the latest version of BE and use Backup to Disk to a NAS it works very well, I use it.

BE 12.5 latest now but be warned it is very expensive for the upgrade of the clients.
There is another alternative which is called "Yosemite" and the link is here BarracudaWare / Yosemite Technologies
Apparently it's very good and they do a special with existing BE customers.

Microsoft are releasing their DPM backup solution very soon. It looks pretty good to me.
I've been using backupexec for years but the upgrade costs are getting crazy

I am running DPM 2010 Release Candidate at the mo for testing backing up to internal drives.
It doesn't like my tape drive and doesn't like external drives so my solution is to use firestreamer with it. It creates files on a external hard drive that DPM thinks are tape slots.... its a bit confusing to start with but I think I have just about got it.
The reason I am using it is the giveaway prices with a schools agreement and its friendly attitude to hyper-v.
Only taken me 3 weeks to sort it out One other thing... 2008 r2 doesn't support hot swapping eSata out of the box.. crashed my server a few times with this.
