SQL Server Backup Compression Also Available in Standard Edition

OK I was under the impression that SQL Server backup compression is only available in enterprise edition only, however starting with SQL Server 2008 R2 backup compression is also available in standard edition.

 Here is MSDN BOL that confirms that

“Backup compression was introduced in SQL Server 2008 Enterprise. Beginning in SQL Server 2008 R2, backup compression is supported by SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard and all higher editions.”
