Opensource or other?

Is this the only server your are running or do you have a lot of them? Linux/Unix only or a mixed environment?

If you want opensource Amanda, Bacula and tar are good options. Other solutions are EMC Networker (Legato), Veritas Netbackup.

I take it this is a local, not a remote server?

Then check out mondorescue: http://mondorescue.org/about.shtml
It is a solid free backup solution.

You could also use rsync snapshots:

rdiff-backup is good for documents, and keeps a retention history of older versions of your docs (show me how this doc looked three months ago 15:00 in the afternoon type of thing without wasting too much extra space).
