I need a software to schedule a daily backup of some directories in windows server 2008 R2.
The backup will be sent to a network storage device Iomega IX2-200.

Which are the options available to accomplish this task?

thank you

if you have to use "onboard" tools, just have a look:

Thats a typical case where Acronis Echo Enterprise Server or Acronis True Image plays an important role.
I would recommend you to image the whole server once and then schedule Acronis to create incremental backups daily on NAS.
In this way it wont choke your network bandwidth and would send the incremental backups of free hundred mb on the remote NAS only
