SBS is a bit more of a complex beast than people think, and the built-in backup just doesn't cut it for anything but the most basic full backup/full restore functions.
One of the key questions you need to ask yourself is, do you need to restore individual emails/contacts/calendar items, or are the backups only to be used for document restores and disaster scenarios? The answer to this has a huge effect on your field of choices. If you don't need that granular recovery, something like the aforementioned Backup4all should work fine for you. If you do, you're going to need to look at more advanced tools like Acronis, Storagecraft's ShadowProtect, Symantec's Backup Exec, etc. There are also plenty of vendors out there that offer a BDR (backup & disaster recovery) device that provides the same functionality on a subscription/rental basis that quite often includes an extra layer of cloud storage. All of the higher-end solutions are pricey, but you get what you pay for.
