The conclusion mentions cost as being a factor, but costs are not listed in the article. How much do these products cost?

SQL Zip is another contender in this field.  I have no experience with the product so I can't say how it compares.  It costs US$500 per server.

I looked at Litespeed and found it to be way too expensive for us, for their standard product their pricing is below, they would offer some discounting so long as you beg enough

We recently ran tests of SQL Litespeed, SQL Safe, and SQL Backup. I found minimal differences with compression and performance of the 3 products. I could not find any justification for the higher cost of the SQL Litespeed or SQL Safe products when compared to SQL Backup. The yearly maintenance cost alone of SQL Litespeed or SQL Safe was higher then SQL Backup including support.

We run this on a couple of clusters, and Red Gate has a version that supports clustered environments without problems.

SQL Backup 4.0 is due out soon, too. And, I was told that we would get the upgrade from SQL Backup 3.2 to 4.0 included with our year of support/maitenance.

SQL Backup has saved us time, disk space, and thousands of dollars.

If you have Lightspeed or SQL Backup, be sure to check out my sp_ABBackup and sp_ABRestore utilities and the article that explains them, http://www.sqlservercentral.com/columnists/vIacoboni/moreintelligentbackupandrestore.asp.

They have saved my hide many times. Basically, it will easily let you backup and restore across several databases whether you use Native, Lightspeed, or SQL Backup. Many times you can get away with a single parameter listing the databases you want to backup/restore, and it will figure the rest out.

Give it a try.

Thanks Viacoboni, that looks great! I especially like your point about SQL Backup error detection. I found some code on the Red Gate site that helps with this, but your's sounds like it's much easier to use.
