I am looking for a backup solution for our company. I need software that will run on a Linux server. Could be Windows also. I am not sure which direction to go with the backup or what exactly is available. We have about 150 Windows PC's some in-house, some remote that need to be backed up regularly. I don't like the idea of copying data to a shared folder to be backed up. Would like more of a server/client way of backing up where each user would have a logon and password and be able to backup their data securely.

I don't have a specific solution, but I'm not sure that depending on each user to backup his data is the right way to go. I know tons of users that would never backup, so unless they're forced to keep valuable data on a server, it's probably likely to be lost.

If a Corporate Client/Server type of network everyone should be keeping all of their Data on the networks File Servers. From there you can backup everyones data.

Every place I have worked we tell all the employees, if you don't save it to a network drive it is not going to get backed up at night. Trying to backup 150 pc's individually would be a nightmare. We had 700 pc's at my last job.

I think you should pay your attention on Acronis products. They have many backup schemes. I think these articles would be interesting for you.
