  • Backup Exec from Symantec is a very good backup software. So is Arcserve. For more have a look at these backup and storage solutions.

  • For a single server, using the built-in Windows Server 2008 Backup using a 1or 2 TB USB drive (depending on required space) should work very well. There is really no reason to spend money on a 3rd party solution for your scenario.
