I've been a backup exec user since the seagate days. Over the last decade I've been really impressed with the innovation and features available now in current disaster recovery tools. It actually seems a lot easier now to achieve near 100% up-time. I'm a big fan of appliance based backup solutions with vm fallback and bare metal restore options. I'm guessing it's just a matter of time before tape backup is phased out of mainstream DR processes.
