Veeam is a nice solution that has been around for a very long time.  I personally like Acronis and Veeam and use them in different scenarios based on the needs of the customer.

As far as "Appliance" mode is concerned I have read some differing opinions on this and for the most part, people agree that Veeam is a better solution.

My recommendation is to try out the free trials and confirm you situation will work with the product first before making a purchase.

Yes, it's called "Virtual Appliance Mode" in Veeam.  I was editing my original answer when you posted...lol to include that info.

Veeam Backup & Replication supports the Virtual Appliance mode, for example, for VM replication or full VM recovery.

The Veeam backup proxy is an architecture component between data source and target that processes jobs and deliver backup traffic. Depending on your backup architecture, the backup proxy can use one of the following data transport modes:
Direct SAN Access
Virtual Appliance
Network

The Virtual Appliance mode is one of two prefered modes when you want to take the load off the LAN.

Veeam Management Software installs on Windows OS, and then connects to Host or vCenter Server to send instructions to Backup the VMs, No Agent is dropped onto the VMs it backs up!
