I use clonezilla occasionally for backups, but the majority of the time i'm using it for imaging systems. I never really think of it as a "backup" tool per say. tar, dump and rsync are givens for me, and I use AMANDA as well.

Of Course. Large user base. Very active developer group. Lots of interesting developments in the last year or so. Just check in to the Amanda Users list or the Amanda Hackers list.

Yes, support via users list is very fast and friendly. Also amanda itself does a great job, especially if you have several systems to back up. Setting it up for the first time takes a little time but once you're done, it works flawlessly.

Duplicity is pretty awesome; while rsync does incremental, and tar lets you encrypt your backups, the combination really work with off-site backups. Duplicity allows to do incremental + encrypted + off-site, with low bandwith requirements (after one initial sync). Also, good granularity and fairly straightforward setup. Together with cron it's the perfect solution for my server and my workstations.

Duplicity and rdiff-backup!
I also use backup4l but that is somewhat old.
rsync and tar are not backup applications. They are tools. In my book that is something completely different. Although I do use and like them (a lot!). I also use cp a lot. Just moving data around is not a backup. See the second post; very clever and short script. So short in fact he forgets to backup his entire personal config and settings set.

Thumbs up

I love Amanda Enterprise with the GUI (Zmanda), it makes configuring backups a lot easier. For me it is better than the free edition, if I run into a problem, I can give these guys a ring and they solve it for me.
