I'm am looking to compare solutions for BC and BDR.

We have about 75TB to backup across about 200 VMs running on Hyper-V 2012 in 3 locations. All have Equallogic arrays for the storage.

What are some solutions I could look at?
I'm am open to both software, appliance, or a combination of both.

I think I would opt for Equallogic SAN Snapshots, which you can control with the Host Integration Kit, and then use Replication to Replicate the SAN Snapshots to other Equallogic SANs for Backup.

or, Veeam Backup and Replication for Hyper-V or Altaro
