Hi Niki,
thank you for your answer.

I remember you when I used Slackware and I think your KISS is inherited 
by there but sometimes more complex things are needed. Rsnapshot is a 
great tool but I need catalog, jobs info, pre/post job script on remote 
target, mailing, compression and possibly store data off-site (no on a 
public cloud).
