I used to use a product by Vale to do this...doesn't look like they exist any more.  Does anyone know of another option?

    i like this.  Thank you.  Have you used it?  I might have found one small inconvenience?

    I like to run full back-ups of my most active dbs daily and trn backups on the hour.  Is this a good plan?  Because it looks to me like the only frequency I can select on this is a certain time each day.  If I am correct, that means I would have to create 23 trn backups for each db.

    Well, to be honest, like I said, a customer of mine uses it without issues, that's how I know about this software, but I haven't used it myself no, and the customer uses it just to take 2 backups in 24h ... I'll need to take a look at how he has it configured, but that might take a while.
