Online backup-services are great to back up to, but IMO a PITA to
restore from (slow...). 

We're currently using a so called net backup (with tivoli) to
backup user data, profiles and stuff to a central university backup
server(s), but we're also currently test driving a backup-solution

The cost is tending to be way to high (currently USD 500 per
month...) for net backup services. You might want to check out the
cost in advance, and don't forget to take into account how the cost
will change when the amount of data increases (it will *never*
