What is your budget -- Not very expensive
How many users -  approx. 250
Average amount of data per user? -- 4 Gb
Type of data? (ie. pst's or office documents) - pst, office files, autocad files
Do you want to back up to a provider or in-house?- in house
Do yuo want dedupe/block level backup? - dedup is preferable
Ok, do you have a netbackup infrastructure in place? There is a client available for workstations. There are also some open source solutions but most of them fall short on good dedupe.

Iron mountain have a product that is for clients too and is very good but more pricy.

Both netbackup and Iron Mountain's offering have dedupe that works well as well as versioning. This means you only back up the original data once and then daily backups are only changed files after the seed is complete.

Introducing the "443 Security Simplified" Podcast

This new podcast puts you inside the minds of leading white-hat hackers and security researchers. Hosts Marc Laliberte and Corey Nachreiner turn complex security concepts into easily understood and actionable insights on the latest cyber security headlines and trends.

Another solution you use is Symantec's Backup exec 2010. It supports Dedup, and you can also purchase the module for your mail client, ie exchange which will allow you restore individual mails from those mailboxes if need be.

You can also allocate the priority on the other machines so you don kill the machine being backed up.
We have an office of around 200 users and don't have any problems with this solution.

You can also have a look to PSTStation Corporate ( that allows backup while pst is in use, incremental backup (message level), centrally management of the backup and the restore, and many other like discover PST file on the network, statistics, ...
Sounds like would work for you.
