Personally, I think Symantec Backup Exec has losts it's way since Symantec purchased Veritas, but this is my personaly opinion.

1. DPM offers much better integration with SQL, Exchange and cluster configurations.

2. Host based server backups.

3. Mich faster recovery time.

4. Fast backup time, reduces backup Window.

5. Users can recover their own files (if you let them!)

Anyway DPM has my thumbs up. But take a look at the following at reviews.

Have a look at the followign comparisons that have been  done
