I know that this is not too helpful, but yo can use VEEAM (sp?) with ESXi (free) to backup complete servers to another server. We use Veritas here, and I like it. I even find it easy to search through the catalogs now to find instances of people files and to restore a working version.
With VEEAM you can also do file level restore when VMware player is installed from the image you have captured. vmware player is free I think.
You could use vertias to backup the VEEAM backup files to tape to take off-site. HTH

Just a heads up for anyone thinking of using MS DPM. You will need quite a bit of disk storage space in order to backup to disk, before archiving off to tape. The reason for this is that DPM allocates disk volumes (with space to grow) for each protection item (these can be server hard disk volumes, hyper-v stores etc...).
I had setup a 6TB volume in Raid5 config yesterday (4 x 2TB disks), but that looked like it wasn't going to be enough, so I extended it even further. I like the program so far, but just be warned about disk space.

Gabe Van Zanten did a good review of some of the main backup products out there including esXpress and VDR 1.0

Any one looked at Zamanda ?
Zamanda is one of those OpenSource projects which now has a commercial product.
A Linux based backup, with agents for MS Exchange, SQL and Sharepoint and more. Nice feature to eliminate off site tapes, supports backup to Amazon S3 Storage Cloud.

Another vote for Yosemite, cheap and effective. A single license costing about £1000 can provide backup for Unlimited Windows Servers, SQL and Exchange

I got a quote from them back in September but waiting for this years budget before we start comparing products. The price I've got for various agents isn't too bad - certainly a lot cheaper than BE!

Out of interest, how much data are you backing up? 3TB?

We got rid of all tape backup now and use NAS / USB drives to backup to. I use Acronis backup and recovery 10 and it works like a dream. Easy to use, FAST and dead easy to restore a file, folder or whole server.

Not many people using the RDX hard drive cartrdige based systems? Great in primaries at least - more than enough space to keep 5 weeks of 1 day backups one one cartridge, using a grandfather-father-son type backup system too, and don't need replacing unlike tapes. Guessing it's just a capacity thing for larger schools but im just interested
