we use bacula, but it's handled completely by our hosting company and i have no idea how involved it would be to set it up.
as for mysql, if i am not mistaken, you can't use any of the tools you mentioned. you'd want to use mysqldump that comes with mysql or innodb hot backup if you're using innodb and you care about data consistency. you'd also want to dedicate a slave for this.
A bit more on the high end would be Acronis True Image. It takes an entire image rather than a backup copy and then does bit level updates to the image. With the additional Universal Restore Agent, you can restore across different hardware platforms and VMs. That is from physical to physical, physical to VM, VM to VM, and VM to physical.
Unfortunately, I like and use universal custom scripts for all my backups.
thanks for the input Sp Chess. i looked into it a bit more and i think i will go with netbackup. we're a fairly high level symantec partner (who recently bought veritas) so i can probably get netbackup for cheap or probably for free.
