Teradactyl is _very_ expensive, cost prohibitively so for many. (I
recently looked at it as a potential replacement [for consolidation]
for my current backup systems--BackupAFS and Zmanda.)

I've been using BackupAFS for a few months now and it is working
pretty well. The initial setup is a bit involved--but once it's up and
running, it pretty much just works. Definitely worth a look.
