I have been getting into MS clustering and I would like to know what is best practices for backing up the cluster. We have several backup software technologies. Which of the following or others are used by other people to backup a cluster?

SAN Based replays using Dell Compellent - works good but not super intuitive for my junior admins
Veeam - doesn't seem to have support for MS Clusters at all.
Symantec Backup Exec 2012- Can't seem to find a whole lot of info on support of MS clusters.

We use SAN based backup, quick and reliable. (providing you have the Snapshot space!)
