You could try Arkeia. Arkeia Light is free, but limited to backups to
a single tape drive for two clients (and the server itself). If you
need to test more functionality they'll provide a time limited test
Arkeia has a quite active user community on a mailing list. It's a
nice place to get some help should you need it.
