You can try to upgrade Arkeia to the 'pro' version, and get more bells and whistles, or go with something like Backula.
However, IMHO, you get what you pay for. Managing backups for any growing enterprise is a full-time job, if you do it right. Spend the money on something robust. NetBackup or Tivoli Storage Manager is what I've used, but they are costly. Don't know how big your company is, though...
