I use rsync.  It is a nifty little utility, and all transfers are done
using ssh.

Not sure what you mean.  Rsync timing is managed through cron, and it
uses ssh encryption.  Users don't have to do anything - their files
are synchronized automatically.

For pure backups, you can write scripts to copy and rotate files on
whatever schedule you would like.
