Yes indeedy. I've been an rsync fan for years now.
Both for backups, and for random i-need-to-copy-this-data-elsewhere
purposes.  It's secure too, it runs over ssh.

But there's nothing magic about it for backup purposes. You
still have to tell it exactly which directories or files you want 
to copy.  It's really just rcp on steroids.
