Check It appears to do most of what Legato does and
the tape format is slightly modified UNIX dump, rather than
proprietary, so you can restore to a totally hosed machine with a
little "dd" futzing. Amanda schedules backups based on priority so you
don't have to worry about this yourself. It's excellent at network
backup and knows how to drive most tape robots.

I use it on three different UNIXes and there are hooks to get it to
backup NT via Samba. There are some issues backing up busy NT files
like the registry but I haven't looked into that yet.
