Which database adapter have you been using for the Zope database
We've never had reports of missing data or anything the like from our
mxODBC Zope DA customers in all the years it has been in production
Perhaps you are facing database problems with the database that
originate in the way the database does row level locking ?
Or are you talking about ZODB conflict errors ?

I guess you're better off with storing your data in the ZODB if
you're looking for file copy based consistent backups.
I don't know of any RDBMS that would allow file copy based backups
from a running system while still maintaining consistency. At the very
least, the database system has to flush its buffers to the database
files, so you need special tools for the backup one way or another.
OTOH, nearly all database systems provide live backup tools
which create consistent backups of a running system.
