Server Backup Software

A list of backup software that I find ideal for operation in unattended server environments.

Primary requirements are:

  • Unattended operation (Runs as a service by default)
  • Scheduling or Smart backup (watches for changes)
  • Ability to store the backups offsite. (A3, Dropbox, GoogleDrive, etc)

This list could easily be huge since there are a pile of good options but I am limiting this list to options that I would personally suggest. Please use the suggestions listed to poke around within this great AlternativeTo site for other options that might suite you better.
