rsync more often. Seriously. If your data is that important, put it in a loop and run it nonstop, or with a 5-minute sleep between each run. In general, however, the requirements you seem to be asking for don't fall under the category of "cheap". There are some things you just can't do cheaply, and getting up to the minute backups is one of them.
