Borg (https://borgbackup.readthedocs.io/en/stable/) is the currently 
maintained fork of Attic, so you should look to Borg instead for 
'Attic' style backups.

Myself, I've been using rsnapshot (https://rsnapshot.org/) for several 
years.  I'm also experimenting with restic (https://restic.net/) as a 
potential replacement for the rsnapshot setup and have migrated a 
hosted VM to restic already.  If you are considering Borg (previously 
Attic) then you might also want to evaluate Restic as well.
