Plus 1 for unison.
You can operate it in a couple different ways, one to sync directories, and on
contribute to a consolidated backup.

You can backup selected directories, and even selected files while forbidding
the backup of other file types (like .cores).

It comes in a variety of different versions which are not always compatible.
Opensuse only has the latest version, but you must have the same version on
all machines, linux, windows, etc. You are always stuck chasing the lowest
common denominator, so save what ever version you install, and LOCK it in
Yast/zypper so that it does not have an incompatible version overwriting
the one that matches your servers and all the other stations.

After all is said and done, more is said than done.
