Been looking to get a better backup for our situation. I want something that snapshots making synthetic full backups. I have seen a few that allow you to mount the synthetic full backups on a vm as well. Veeam is vm only. Appasure is expensive and I think windows only (fine by me). A lot of the solutions cost as much as a small SAN, which also does a lot of the same backup features as the backup solutions so the lines get blurred. I forget which software I was taking hard looks at as other projects demanded my attention but I think a few names were quarrum, unitrends (vRecovery or a box), starwind something or the other, vaeem, drobo (which teams with vaeem in special pricing), Dell equiligic as this SAN does a lot; I think even netapp came out with a new small box that includes almost everything though I never did get an actual price. Right now we are using retrospect which I guess is still owned by Roxio but who knows and some win 2008 backups as retrospect does not work with ex 2k10 yet.
