Can users be connected during a SQL backup?

We have a existing backup, re-index job that runs at night on an
existing database that is now accessed by web users 24/7.
Problem is that one of the steps is to kill all users before backup
starts so it kills any transactions that are happening at that time
question is... Can users be connected during a backup? Will removing
the kill users step slow the backup alot?
any other suggestions would be appreciated.
thanks

esource,

Backups run fine with people logged in and working. Users will not slow the
backup a lot much and backups should (in fact) be done without requiring
clearing out the users.
