linux cloud backup

Is there an open source project or software that will backup windows (xp, xin7 or server) to a linux server? I prefer ubuntu server, but if it's free it will work. I'm looking to do remote off-site backups for my company, but don't have money to spend on this.

Multiple windows servers (w2k, 2003, and 2008) need to backup files, sql databases, and such to it. I've searched online for a good solution, but all I have found it rsync, but am unsure if that would work or not.

Also It will need to be able to remotely restore lost files.
