Backup Solution Windows Server


We are using different Server-Versions at different customers. Mostly Server 2008 R2, SBS 2011 and Server 2013.
Some of them are using Exchange and all of the customers want to backup their files (or Databases).
Does anybody knows any software to use? We already tried NovaStor which failed almost every time and the configuration is very awful.
We also use Altaro for backing up HyperV-Machines which works very well, but Altaro doesn't backup standalone server.

So. Anyone here with a good idea?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Symantec BESR or Shadow Protect? Also Acronis does file and database level backups.

I would suggest CommVault as a reliable backup solution. A complex product, but very good. I would be worth giving Netbackup a try too.

We are a NetBackup shop and it works great.  CommVault and BackupExec are also good solutions.  Keep in mind that NetBackup is an Enterprise level software and is not cheap.  If cost is an issue then look at BackupExec.

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

Yeah as experts said... there are lot of backup solutions parallelly now  backup trends are  changing to store on hard disk with a retention period.... on NLSAS HDD storages...

as well bit cheaper means backup exec... compare to Symantec net backup (it's an amazing product by the way)

I like Symantec as it's having excellent support team...

all the best

HP Data Protector is another option.  Still provides enterprise functionality, but much less expensive than Netbackup.  Data Protector is pretty easy to configure.  In addition, if you are managing all these backups, you can do it from a single "Cell Manager" instance, with each site's backups going to local targets (or, to a central backup target at your data center.  Supports Windows, Hyper-V, VMware, Linux, etc.

In addition, if you are acting as a service provider, you can back up to disk at the local site, and replicate to your data center deduplicated data (i.e., only the changes and new data) for WAN-efficient transfers.
Here is the list of some good Exchange backup & recovery software. Have a look-
