Backup Strategy

Hi guys

I'm just looking at updating our backup strategy.

At present we're using VEEAM 5 to backup our VMWare virtual machines.

we then back these up to tape using BackupExec 12.

I was looking at BackupExec 2012, and this states that it can back up VMs itself.

Has anyone used this? Has anyone any recommendations on how i could improve our method?

Yes, we've used it, it's impressive, but lets not forget some much better products...

But lets' not forget some other worth contenders, these could touple Veeam this year, with very strong and Award winning products. AppAssure and Unitrends.

AppAssure
http://www.appassure.com/ - Number 1 Backup and VMs and Cloud

Unitrends
http://www.unitrends.com/ - a good vRecovery Backup Appliance.

Symantec Backup Exec V-Ray Edition
http://www.symantec.com/backup-exec-vray-edition - Unmatched backup and recovery designed for virtual and physical environments

added the following for completeness.....

VM Explorer
http://www.trilead.com/ - Simply, cost effective and it works.

Acronis Backup & Recovery® 11 Virtual Edition
http://www.acronis.com/virtualization/ - simple but effective

StorageCraft ShadowProtect Server
http://www.storagecraft.com/  - amazing but can be expensive

Thanks.

At the minute, we're paying support for both VEEAM and BackupExec.

Would any of these solutions replace both of these, like a 1 stop backup?
