This other article is rather interesting:

We have a setup that is very similar to what Gregy wants, and we are
using the approach of the article mentioned before: we have a central
server that pulls data from office servers through ssh at night. For
Windows office servers we are using the stand-alone rdiff-backup binary
together with CopSSH (www.itefix.no/copssh/), and it seems to work
pretty well.

On a side note: as mentioned in another thread, we are using rsync
(still over ssh) for the initial copy, when the data size is huge.
