I've been looking into efficient and easy ways to keep backups of a server and came across these two tools.
Note these are not for casual users, but for server admin types, and run mostly on *nix.

Also see these tutorials at http://www.howtoforge.com:

I use RIBS (Rsync Incremental Backup Script) http://www.rustyparts.com/ribs.php to back up servers. It use rsync to minise netwrk traffic.

RIBS is run by cron jobs. Theservers doneed shell access.

It is very efficent and easy to use.
