So I am wondering what else people use out there other than Time Machine to do incremental backups?

I don't mean apps like Super Duper or CCC that make bootable images or just back up what changes. I want to be able to save several versions of files (like Time Machine).

There are a bunch of reasons I don't like Time Machine. First I have a backup server that all my Macs go to and it's not a Mac and Time Machine can't do network volumes like this without hacks. Plus it's not very customizable.

I used to use dirvish when I was on Linux and since OS X is built on BSD I am sure it would work but it's not the most elegant solution.

I have heard that Chronosync can be good for something like this. The three licenses I would need would cost me like $90 which is a bit steep but if it does what I want I am cool.

Any other suggestions?
