Linux backup solution (physical & virtual)

Got a server running a modified RH 5.2 OS, the plan is to eventually migrate it from a physical server to a VMware guest. It is running both RAID 0 and RAID 1 on 2 different SCSI controllers.

We need to be able to do file level back up and if possible "snapshot" the server while the current server is running and has open files (critial requirement). So far I've looked at Appasure and Veeam but neither can perform all of the requirements. Looking for a commercially available backup solution that meets all of the aforementioned requirements, thank you!

Have you looked at Unitrends? Getting open files may be a problem for any software given the linux architecture. It handles physical and virtual. Databases usually require some scripting to get them to backup properly. Once it is a VM you have some more options because the hypervisor can always snapshot the storage.

Yep, scripting seems to be the only solution I've been able to garner so far. I'll check out Unitrends, thanks for the tip.
