"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Veeam Backup and Replication for Hyper-V

and also Altaro backup, we really like this product, and now use it instead of Veeam!


Both available for free trials, download them and try them out.

As for a NAS, Synology, Qnap or Drobo, offer low cost solutions, remember the low the disk count, the slower the NAS, also the NAS processor!

I use BackupAssist: http://www.backupassist.com/index.html

It's basically an interface to Windows Backup (at least it started that way) but found it to be very reliable and cheaper than most other server backup solutions.
