Best Fedora based backup server?

I build a little home server which i installed fedora23 server with a btrfs filesystem and six 1tb hd on a virtual RAID6 array, I have 4tb of useful space but will use most on other things. I have virtualized a few servers and want one of them to be a Backup server. Was looking into amanda, clonezilla and deja-dup. I am inclining to amanda but read here on askfedora that dejadup is more native to fedora. Is that true? are they similar? I want to be able to make remote backups from windows and linux systems, if possible even android phones. Also was thinking of doing the backups on a 3tb external usb 3.0 drive, or should i use the internal server memory?(I am less inclined to use the server internal hard drives even if it is btrfs and raid, I understand i shouldn't backup in the same disks that I have most of my data in right?). Also I'm interested in knowing which application will optimize memory by only backing up parts of the disks that are used and not all of the disk image, or is this unavoidable?

Thanks for the help.
