LiteSpeed is another awesome product for backups.  I've used it where the performance results justified the cost.  It is pretty expensive, but again you get what you pay for.

IIRC, LiteSpeed will work natively with TSM, but not with NetBackup.  I don't know about any of the other compression-capable products.

My environment is very large and we use Netbackup to backup a lot of servers and it works well, for the most part. One concern I do have is that we use a VTL with de-dupe and that means that you can't use naitive SQL compression when you are backing up large databases. This causes more of a network bottleneck.

Another concern is handling failed backups as the database backups are spread across three teams. Windows Admins load the Netbackup agents, DBA sets up the SQL agent scripts and the SAN/UNIX team schedules the jobs. It can make root failure analysis difficult.

I know this reply is quite a bit of time after the post, however, where can I find documentation that native SQL backup followed by copy to media using Netbackup is best practice? I agree with the idea, but the higher ups need more than my word.

I was wondering the same thing. This seems to be an ongoing issue.
