Did you look at the other 3rd party tools for compressed backups, except Litespeed? What bothers me in most of them is that I do not see the results of the native backups, unless they have been made through the proprietary tool. For small databases it does not make sense to backup in proprietary format. And, of course, if some of your servers have large databases, and some - just moderate ones, it would be nice to purchase a tool for large servers, and still be able to see all backups from the same management console.
Do you have any thoughts on this?
