Backup solution for Red Hat Server

Is there any NAS that could serve as as Amanda Backup server that could backup all my linux servers in my network ? Is there other backup solution that could backup all the servers into a portable USB drive ?

Thanks

-http://amanda.zmanda.com/ amanda is a great backup solution, if you're willing to spend the time to learn how to set it up and so on.  It works very well, and there's good support from their mailing list.

-Backuppc is also a nice solution for backups for a nice how to(debian) but it should work on all linux as well check out http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/588

-http://clonezilla.org/
Free (GPL) Software.
Filesystem supported: ext2, ext3, ext4, reiserfs, xfs, jfs of GNU/Linux, FAT, NTFS of MS Windows, and HFS+ of Mac OS. Therefore you can clone GNU/Linux, MS windows and Intel-based Mac OS, no matter it's 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x86-64) OS. For these file systems, only used blocks in partition are saved and restored. For unsupported file system, sector-to-sector copy is done by dd in Clonezilla.
LVM2 (LVM version 1 is not) under GNU/Linux is supported.
Multicast is supported in Clonezilla SE, which is suitable for massively clone. You can also remotely use it to save or restore a bunch of computers if PXE and Wake-on-LAN are supported in your clients.

-mondo
http://www.mondorescue.org/
Mondo is comprehensive. Mondo supports LVM 1/2, RAID, ext2, ext3, ext4, JFS, XFS, ReiserFS, VFAT, and can support additional filesystems easily: just e-mail the mailing list with your request. It supports software raid as well as most hardware raid controllers. It supports adjustments in disk geometry, including migration from non-RAID to RAID. Mondo runs on all major Linux distributions (RedHat, RHEL, SuSE, SLES, Mandriva, Debian, Gentoo) and is getting better all the time. You may even use it to backup non-Linux partitions, such as NTFS.
Mondo is free! It has been published under the GPL v2 (GNU Public License), partly to expose it to thousands of potential beta-testers but mostly as a contribution to the Linux community.


if you want a gui ... then just try backupPC

In my enviroment i use backupPC beside tsm + rsync + mondo.

Also you clould check storix sbadmin http://www.storix.com/linuxbackup  !=free
http://www.storix.com/download/linux_bmr_whitepaper.pdf
while SBAdmin for Linux is an advanced tape and disk backup management solution, it is the ability to completely rebuild a system, from bare-metal, that distinguishes SBAdmin from competing products. SBAdmin includes Adaptable System Recovery (ASR), which provides the unique ability to recover an entire Linux system and install it onto the the same or dissimilar hardware.
