I'm looking for something that will run on a RedHat 7.1 server and will backup files from that server to a tape or zip drive. (We just dont have the resources to set up a dedicated backup server.)
I found a software package called Arkeia, but I was looking for some other suggestions from people actually using backup software now.
I have had good results with taper and mkCDrec. taper is mainly a sophisticated frontend to tar/gzip, while mkCDrec is really great for creating bare-metal-restore CD copies of a server (you boot the first CD and you have all the admin tools to restore the services AND data without having to reinstall the OS first - saves loads of time!).
