I use Veeam for both VM and Workstation/Server backup with the Windows Agent.
It is my go to BU software, after having evaluated many other options.
It is a simple to use product.
And they have great technical support as well.  A good bunch to deal with.
Give it a try, there are free trials of all of their paid products.
And you can use the software in enterprise environments or at home for free, forever.
The free version requires more work to get it to schedule backups on VMs.

yes, it is simple, and modulable
Also it is simple, still you should look at how to do things correctly and some best practices

The cons in my opinion : it has become a little expensive over time..
But some last news about that : they just changed their licensing, introducing "instances" licenses
Here is a link, but this is a pretty long one to read... :

Basically they gone to per VM licenses which can work out cheaper for smaller businesses but more expensive for larger enterprises!

Because you no longer license hosts per CPU

So you can now have two hosts managing 10 VMs under 10 instances

You can also allocate licenses for VMs which need to be backed up so you do not need licenses for all your VMs which you are hosting
