I need a Backup tool!
Hi All!

My company needs a backup tool to be able to manage the data of some other companies remotely. The data of the other companies should be stored at our server and the backup process should be done dayly or weekly and if possible automatically (but i think the problem is not the automation here). I have to manage project data and I also have to manage entire databases (Oracle, MySQL and maybe PostgreSQL). Does anyone know about such a backup utility?
That would be great if it has a GUI, but that's not really necessery.

Any help would be appreciated...

Thanks a lot.

And here is a page with a lot of backup applications for linux:
