XenServer 5.6 FP1 Backup Options

I have heard really good things about phdvirtual (www.phdvirtual.com) if you want a commercial solution.

http://docs.vmd.citrix.com/XenServer/4.0.1/installation/apbs04.html is instruction from the Xen people on how to backup and restore Xen hosts and VMs.

COuld I just write a script to copy / dump the config and other core files to a network share that is then backed up to tape?
