Well, did you look at SafeKeep?

It's based on a central server that contacts linux clients to backup
the data. It automatically handles LVM snapshots, DB dumps (for MySQL
and Postgresql), uses nice(1) and ionice(1) to avoid overloading the
clients and the server, and does everything over ssh for security.

One drawback is that it doesn't currently work for Windows clients,
but there's nothing in the design preventing it to do so.
