Personally I use BackupPC to back up Linux/Mac servers and Linux/Windows 
desktops/laptops. It is primarly for online ( disk ) backups but has an 
archive function as well.

There are Fedora rpms for it available in th Everything repo and the source is 
available on sourceforge < http://backuppc.sourceforge.net >  I tend to use 
the source as it's easy to set up and allows me to configure the backup 
directories as I like.
