We are currently looking for a good MSSQL Server 2012 backup solution. Has anyone tried VMware VDP Advanced for backing up databases? What would you recommend and why?

I would not recommend VDP Advanced over Veeam Backup and Replication.

Any reason you don't want to use native backups?  They have native compression (usually at 1/5-1/7th the size of uncompressed backups).  As of SQL Server 2014, native backups can also be encrypted.  You have your standard players for 3rd party SQL Server backups, however:


Quest Litespeed - http://software.dell.com/products/litespeed-for-sql-server/

Idera Safe Backup - https://www.idera.com/productssolutions/sqlserver/sqlsafebackup

RedGate SQL Backup Pro - http://www.red-gate.com/products/dba/sql-backup/

They all get the job done, but have different UI's and features.  They also all have free trials.  I wholeheartedly recommend downloading the trials and giving them all a try and deciding which one works best for you.

Does Veeam Backup work with backing up MSSQL at the database or log file level?
