We have 4 ESX servers all using direct attached sotrage. We would like the ability to backup the VMDK for restore and the abaility to restore at the file level with the same backup. We would like to avoid using VCB at this point in time. Is there any solutions that fill our requirements.

Thank you for the information

Your best bet would something like vRanger Pro:
http://www.vizioncore.com/products/vRangerPro/

I belive it is the most popular VMware-specific backup product and allows for file-level recovery of VMs.  It takes backups of your running VMs via connecting to the service console of each box or connecting to a vCenter server.  GUI-based and very easy to use.

Symantec's Backup Exec also now sells a VMware component that allows backups through vCenter or ESX hosts.
