Thanks for all the suggestions!
I would like to move away from Veritas, just personal preference - for 
what any of their products cost, I personally think it is not worth it.
Amanda doesnt span volumes/tapes.
backuppc doesnt do tapes, and I have a few terabytes to backup in one 
shot, so disk as a target isnt such a good option.

Not to poopoo anyones suggestion, but I pretty much need an enterprise 
level solution for soda pop price! ;-)
