Is there a known continuous backup solution similar to r1soft backup for FreeBSD? I googled a lot but couldnt find anything.

R1soft says they need help to develop FreeBSD support in their product. Do you know anybody who can help r1soft on this issue?

Please see: http://forum.r1soft.com/showpost.php?p=3414&postcount=9
Would the GEOM gate class handle this?  See ggatec(8) and ggated(8).

Bacula does not support continuous backups as far as I know. It has to scan all the files to find new/changed files to backup. The r1soft agent monitors file system writes and backs up changed parts immediately. This does allow r1soft backup to restore the system to its latest state (10-15minutes ago state, thus continuous backup is achieved) as it continually updates the backups. Also has much less stress on the systems where the writes are not so much since it doesnt have to check every file at each backup cycle. Also r1soft cdp has support for MySQL where you can easily restore mysql data in table level if required. It is as well supported by a wide variety of web hosting automation systems for example H-Sphere ( http://www.parallels.com/hsphere/ ) etc. through plugins.

Please see the info about continuous data protection:

Otherwise I am currently using BackupPC (which is pretty good in my opinion and easier to use compared to Bacula) to take nightly backups of the servers.
