Rackspace back up systems

I have a machine at rackspace. They used to use Legato (which was bought out by EMC) for backups, and they have switched to CommVault. I also learned SQL Server has to be backed up separately from the normal file system backup because the SQL Server files are in a state of flux and won't be able to restore your database from a file system backup.
