SBS 2011 doesnt support tape backup anymore, so you would have to look at third party alternatives like Symantec Backup Exec.

Thanks for that but I do realise that MS Backup does not suport Tape backups.  I stated that in my question.  SBS does support tape backups if one chooses the supporting backup software.  My question indicated which software is suitable.

Almost any software is suitable that will clear the exchange logs and backup SQL databases.  Backup Assist is probably the least agro with the most features for the price.
