backing up file server to remote linux host

I'm considering using rsnapshot to do remote backups (via rsync) to my dedicated server...unless there's something better I don't know about...any recommendations?

I've got a few servers, 2 production web hosts and a personal file server at home. I'd like to do incremental backups all to my 1tb dedicated server.

Backup file server to remote linux hosts using RSYNC.rsync allows encryption of data using ssh protocol during transfer.Look after the link for more useful rsync syntax.

Yeah, rsnapshot will do incremental backups and uses rsync. It's pretty easy to configure, but the project looks to be somewhat dead...just curious if there is something newer and better, its been about 5 years since i used rsnapshot.
