BEX 2010 continuous incremental option?

Dear EE
For an endcustomer we are looking for a solution, that will make the use of tapes in their current backup setup obsolete.
Their current setup consists of the following: 1xSBS2008 server  1x2008 member server
BackupExec 2010 with tape drive.
We normally provide solutions based on ShadowProtect diskbased backups with continuous incremental strategy. (plus IME)
It proved to be nearly impossible to find info for this on the symantec site; could you help me with the following Q's:
does BEX2010 have a similar option as the SP continuous incremental option?
does BEX2010 have a online backup option? (similar to the SP  ImageManagerEnterprise offsite replication option?)
Many thnx!

Yeah ,I believe the new SBS versions of Symantec System Recovery Small Business Server Edition have the dedupe and continuous built in.

Thnx. Looks like a neat product, much like acronis and shadowprotect. It does not seem to integrate with or add to BEX 2010 though?
That's the challenge we're facing; the endcustomer invested in BEX2010 and a tape drive only two years ago. Now they're experiencing the downsides of the tape handling and complexity of disaster recovery..
For now we are looking for a way to automate the offsite backups; thus requiring a sort of continuous incremental policy and a online replication mechanism
