Backup software for RDX cartridges

After spending a few years dealing only with cloud-based backup systems, I have a client that due to internal reasons, has to have an in-house solution.

They want to utilize the RDX drives. I had experience with this in the past, and my main memory is that they were difficult when it came to 'overwriting'. I did a quick look at Backup Exec 2012, and from the forums, it looks like the issue is still there.

The setup are two VM servers running on one physical box. We would like to be able to do full VM backups, and/or file backups for easier file restore.

I have no problem putting in another server that would be a dedicated backup server.

What brands/software out there function well with the RDX drives?

Why not just use their  GoProtect Software?

PGM554, thanks for time/answer, but the GoProtect software isn't as robust as I need (no VM support, etc.). I am going to go with Arcserve D2D.
