If you're small to mid-sized DPM works great. Its scalability story 
isn't nearly as good as Symantec NetBackup or CommVault Simpana (I can 
get into details if you care, but you're probably not the size of 
enterprise where this matters). However, it's a lot less expensive than 
most backup products and backing up VMs is a snap.
