Microsoft
Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager is well suited for Windows domain environments where you need to make backups of Hyper-V virtual machines or bare metal servers. It is possible to backup SQL databases, works pretty well, but sometimes needs consistency checks on backups to properly continue to backup databases. Easy to restore anything to production or to another location.
