I haven't had any issues with Time Machine on multiple boxes, using
different drives at different locations.

That said, before TM I have used Retrospect for 20 years, sometimes
standalone, but mostly on the network for our entire company, and to my
memory, I have never had a recovery failure from Retrospect, despite a pile
of 32 dead hard drives (at last count) sitting on a desk behind me.  We
have backed up to DAT, Travan, disk drives, and probably other technologies
during that time.

On the first day, God created the heavens and the Earth
On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
   and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."
