Hundreds of options out there, it really depends on your environment
and what you want to protect.  Do you want to backup desktops?
Servers only?  Windows, Linux, or Unix servers?  How much data?

If you already have backup to disk setup locally, the easiest, best
working, and economical solution I've found is JungleDisk by
Rackspace:

It has been pretty flawless for me in a couple of locations for DR,
but be sure to test backup/recovery times... it seems to only use one
connection and latency seems to limit transfers to around 8Mbit/sec,
but of course YMMV.

Feel free to give me a call or contact me off list for more.
