The problem i'm having is that most software can do backup to FTP, the problem is that they don't have a built in limiter to limit the upload during the day to say 256Kbps and say full speed at night. I checked the one you mentioned and it can schedule just fine but don't think they do speed limiters (still checking). If I do full speed all day long it will cause issues with getting work done with browsing/downloading and such.
It does have bandwidth limitations you can set in each job.
Also like you pointed at, you could always using something like.. i know my sonicwall will do AppRules to limit bandwidth, which can be 24/7 or on a schedule.
Another approach is to take daily or weekly system images to a NAS somewhere in the building, and then use something like DropBox to store your shared/mapped folders in and have them sync to an off-site system as well as the cloud. But I don't know how much data we are talking about. DropBox will do delta sync/deduplication with the files I believe.
