hyper-v backup question

just wondering what everyone uses to backup their vhd files to nas?

i would like a program that does an online backup using the hyper-v vss writer.

backup exec ?

acronis ?

windows server backup ?

Use the acronis its reliable and you can also go for the BDR from Zenith backup to backup the hyper-v, also you can use any file level backup application.

Not sure if the others do it or not, but im using backup exec with granular recovery licensing so i can recover either the full .vhd file or can recover individual files or objects from the inside the .vhd. Only downside is you need to purchase the hyperv addon to start with and then if needbe the additional application licenses (eq sql, sharepoint, exchange). Hope this helps

Backup Exec System recovery Virtual Edition (gives unlimited virtual machines)
Install it on the host and take a complete backup of your VMs
Very good tool in terms of options
can convert backup imagest o vmware, hyper-v, xen
restores are seamless
deploys agent to all vms and then backs them up to either a NAS, usb or shared storage
If you have exchange 2007 and above, it will give you granular mailbox level restores too (Exchange aware - log truncation)
Hope that helps

Windows Server backup is good too
We have on some client sites, used it, by backing up the VM itself via WSB to a network share.
