tarball is the most reliable method to backup your thing. Why not try it?

I'll prefer RSYNC.
Thru rsync you can synchronise two directories. Two directories, which can be at any location. Out of these two location you need to have a RSYNC server installed at one of those two machines, either at client or host.

With RSYNC you also can do incremental backup.
With RSYNC you can take backup of your office at your home.
With RSYNC you can take synchronise your backup directory & host directory.
Once its set & running, its a pleasure for admins.
Later on you can CRON it as per your needs.

RSYNC can work as anonymous RSYNC server or RSYNC server with authentication.
