I can send you comparision documents if you would like but as Kevin mentioned, first it is good to know the exact needs and specification you or your company expects from Backup solution.

Kind regards

I can only vouch for Veeam which we use in a 100% virtualised environment. for us it's perfect, we run backup locally and replication to a remote datacentre. we can recover individual files or whole VM's. we can spin up recovered VM's in a sandbox environment. we've just started to play with restore to Azure as well. licencing in on a per host basis, we use it for both VMware and Hyper-V vm's. I hope this is of some help to you?

I second Kevin's remark. It is almost impossible to compare various backup solutions without knowing your environment. Are you backing up exclusively Windows, Windows and Linux, do you have Novell, minicomputer and the list goes on. Why type of backup hardware are you using, WORM, Tape Drive, Tape Autochanger..... And I have not even touched the functions you want the backup to do.

Comparing the features of the four is not the right approach. You need to develop a list of requirements for backup and DR that are specific to your organization and then compare each of the four products to those requirements. All the products you have listed do very well in specific niche markets, all of them also have cons as well, without a clear understanding of what your requirements are a product comparison doesn't mean a great deal.
