Rsync wrapper for OSX?

Basically, we've got a new client company at work, and they need a remote backup for their (Mac) server. Rsync is by far the most solid solution I've seen, for any platform, and it's what I use for most of the Windows servers. After an hour or so searching, I failed to find anything decent, so reverted to the old unix standby: bash, rsync, cron. If anyone happens to know a good frontend, it'd be very useful. If you've ever used Deltacopy on Windows, that's exactly what I'm looking for, if not, the features I'd like are:

* Automatic retry on error
* Scheduling
* Email reporting
* Ability to pass rsync switches

I didnt find anything on rsync but i found some other sync/backup solutions.

I dont have any knowledge about servers backups but a quick google found this software solution here. Not sure its what your looking for but you can give it a look.

Found it through this list of Mac Backups solutions.

Hope this helps :)

EDIT: I found this which seems to be a front-end GUI for rsync

I'd had a look at aRsync, but it has crap network support, and doesn't let me do what I want. Almost all of the tools in that big list are either commercial or local :/

Thanks anyway, but it looks like I'll be sticking with cron.
