I got it from the testing repo. I use it to back up Windows servers to my 
Linux server.

To back up the Linux server, I use dump and direct the output to a file on 
a removable USB drive formatted as ext3. I rotate drives the way one might 
rotate tapes.

I've been using dump since 1989, when I had a Sun 386i.

Both BackupPC and dump have their own support infrastructure.
