On the open source side of things, I'm a big fan of Amanda. You can
find the original source and stuff at ftp://ftp.cs.umd.edu/pub/amanda, or
On the closed source side of things, I'm a HUGE fan of Veritas' NetBackup
product. Sadly, the current version supports Linux as a client, not a
backup master, or media server. If you've got a lot of things to backup,
I like the distributed Veritas scheme of things. It's pretty expensive,
I've used both extensively, and recommend them.
