Check into a program called Backup Assist. I believe it can do said backups remotely if you have available bandwidth. (And it's relatively inexpensive).

hi, there

it is quite simple if you are going to use backup exec or other relevant backup software all that is needed is a remote agent + the Oracle Agent as well. If your solution is going to grow you might consider to get some proper Enterprise software at the beginning.

Backup Exec is good for 0 - 5 Servers remote clients if you need more then Netbackup.

Symantec Enterprise product
Netbackup

for small office's Backup Exec

EMC
Legato Networker

Commvault.

I noticed you haven't mentioned whether or not you've already invested in a backup architecture.  Also, I'm not sure if you want a simple backup or if you are looking at high availability options or continuous data replication issues also.

Personally, I would recommend CommVault, if an existing backup infrastructure is not already in place.  It has a CDR piece that will replicate server data from one server to another in near real time.  By doing this, you will be able to perform backups on the server in the main datacenter.  Additionally, this allows you to fail over to the machine that the data is being replicated to if a disaster or failure occurs.  If this isn't for you, you could always use the Aux copy feature of CommVault instead.

CommVault is not cheap, however.  It requires a significant investment from both a hardware and software perspective.  However, with application aware backups, I think it is much better than Veritas and other similar offerings.
