What is everyone using to backup your network

We are backing up almost 2 Terabytes every night.  We are projected to double that space within the next two years.  We are struggling to even meet the 2 Terabytes requirement since there is only so much time overnight to accomplish this.

We are using BackupExec 12.5, Hardware wise we use the Quantum Superloader 3 using LTO4 drives and a SCSI 320 card.  

I'm looking to see what everyone is using for backup to get some ideas on how I can improve this system.  Please tell me your environment, hardware/software that you are using for backup and whether you are happy with your setup.  Thanks.

I have 3 main clients that use 3 different backup setups.

1: Symantec Backup Exec and they backup all data to a SAN.

2: They use a BDR from Zenith which backs up to the local NAS and Offsite as well.  It's pricey though as they pay a monthly fee.  The nice part is though if your exchange server goes down you can go to this appliance and startup a virtual server which can take over as the server lost.

3: This client is currently testing out Yosemite Backup from Barracuda Networks.  Nice thing is that it's a yearly fee of $1500 but includes agents for Exchange, SQL and Sharepoint. Plus you can backup unlimited amounts of data.  

All 3 of these were using tapes at one time and we just moved them off it.
