If you are all Linux... I have had great luck with backuppc. Just get
yourself a decent Sata based multi drive system, and away you go. With
a little extra work, you can use disk to disk to tape/disk for
offsite. Uses rsync as the transport and incremental support. And a
hardlinked pool system for dedup.
A system setup to handle a 30ish day incremental and 1 full per month
for 12 months should not cost more than 10-15k
Plus, all the cost is capex (hardware) this way :)
