We have a Windows 2008 Server running Exchange 2007 that I need to back up and truncate  log files.  Also have a 2003 server acting as domain controller with an instance of sequal on it.  I need to find good back up software for both without breaking the bank.  Any ideas out there?

Use storagecraft as it is an excellent option for backups and also helps with all that your need. In case you need to restore from backups and are stuck- you get assistance with restoring or virtualization.
In future if you plan to virtualize your servers (P to V), this is very helpful.

It comes with a tool called universal restore which helps you restoring image of one server to another with totally different hardware specs.
