We're in the midst of implementing Veritas Net Backup (NBU), which seems to be a pretty good product.

It will work with RMAN as a repository if you like.

If you are on unix and implement VFS, then NBU can make block level backups of Oracle databases. While RMAN can do this also, it must scan the entire datafile to do so. NBU does not need to do this, as VFS already knows which blocks have been touched.

All in all, Veritas has some pretty cool technology.
