 SQL Server backup utility vs Seagate Backup Exec

My network people are trying to persuade me to use their program
(Seagate Backup Exec 7.3) to backup my SQL Server 7.0 databases because
that's what they use. I have been using the built in backup program
from the SQL Server Enterprise Manager and have found that it does
everything that I need it to quite easily, but they still want me to
use Backup Exec.

I think that we should use the SQL Server backup since it is built in
and easy to use.Does anyone have any pros or cons on these two products?

Thanks

Backup exec will allow the admins to put file, and sql backups from multiple
servers on a single tape... That is essentially the difference...

To do the same thing in sql, you would back up all of your databases to a
common disk directory. Then use backup exec to copy the db backup files to
tape... (This is what I personally prefer, but it takes more disk space.)...
additionally, you may (probably) wish to do tran log backups via an alert
mechanism... If so, you will need to somehow integrate this SQL server log
backup into the backup exec scheme..

Otherwise, i do not see this as a really big deal either way.

We tried to use Seagate Backup Exec with the SQL Agent for SQL 7.0. We
encountered some problems and they are confirmed as bugs by Veritas. There
will be a service release for Backup Exec in September.

We are using the latest Tapeware for our SQL 7. Works well.

If you have enough disk space on your SQL Server, you could do database and
transaction log dumps to disk, then come in later with Seagate (or Arcserve,
etc...) to backup the dump files.
