Looking for an image based backup software for LINUX (something like ShadowProtect)

We have been using ShadowProtect to backup Windows PCs for years. We configure ShadowProtect for weekly backup - full backup on Sunday, incremental backups every 1 hour on weekdays.
Now I need to backup a RedHat Linux computer, but ShadowProtect does not have a Linux version yet. I am not a Linux guy, so can anyone please tell me if there is such a software?

Many thanks!!

You can use CloneZilla. The OS must have the partitions unmounted during backup, so it works best if you boot to a CloneZilla LiveCD. The same applies to other image backup software:

Thanks Rindi!
I used  Clonezilla actually. It is a good tool to migrate hard drives or does one time manual backup. Unfortunately, it is not able to make scheduled backups as ShadowProtect does

I'm not aware of any image backup tool that runs under Linux which you schedule.

All unix systems can be backed up at file level. There is no hidden magic past that that image backup could preserve.

Modern linux filesystems have snapshot support so you just dd snapshot where you want.
I really dont feel C grade is right.
