Hi guys,

I've been doing some work for a company that is using 3 different
distros (Gentoo, Ubuntu and CentOS), albeit in different roles.
They've started phasing out Gentoo, but the current backup methods
they are using seem insane. (Everything is done manually).

My first thought was to setup something using RSync, but I came across
this post:

This post seems incredibly spammy, but has anyone here actually used
FWBackup?  Alternatively, do you have any ideas for a good backup tool
I can use to backup the contents of various linux machines&  servers
through the network?

In my last job we used NetWorker. It can handle a mix of machines.
It is not free and does require installation on each client and the only good thing I can say is that it can backup data AND restore it for a mix of server OSes.
