Best backup software for a Hyper-V environment

We are currently using a "Not for resale" version of Backup Exec 2012 to backup our VMs to a Tandberg tape library. This version of BE 2012 does not come with tech support nor can tech support be purchased for that version.

We are starting to look for different backup software and would like some recommendations.

I cant see us spending much more than 1200.00 for this program. We are non-profit agency and simply do not have the funds available to go much higher than that.

Any information that you can give will be greatly appreciated.

It is very cheap and works well for us, although we do all backups at the Windows level.  The latest version does have VM capabilities.

NFR key for Veeam Agent for Linux

Veeam is happy to provide a free NFR license for one year.  It allows for the non‑production use and valid for five workstations and two servers. Veeam Agent for Linux is a simple backup tool for your Linux installations, both on‑premises and in the public cloud.

I'll mention http://www.trilead.com/Features/ here, it's not expensive at all and they have a free version you can try out.

x2 on Veeam

Veeam Backup Free Edition as no limitation on the number of VMs to be protected and has no expiration date. It does have some limitations.

v7 is coming out soon and will have a lot of new features added. Might be worth looking into - Countdown to v7

Hi,

I like Altaro Hyper-v backup. They have a a 30 day trial (Altaro Hyper-V Backup Unlimited Edition) which will switch to the Free Edition automatically after 30 days, keeping you running for free on 2 VMs - forever. If you only have 2 VMs then you're good to go :).

Altaro free trial/2 VM free
