Backup image of hard drive and bare metal restore

Backup and Bare Metal Restore Best Practices: What is the current state of the art for dead-simple drive imaging? I need to backup a mix of Windows 7, Ubuntu, and OSX computers. I would like to do a full drive image, so that in the event of a problem restoration is simple. I need a solution that is automated in the sense that I start the process and can walk away. (Bonus points if it's automated in the sense that it can run automatically at certain intervals from another computer on the network or a NAS.) Ideally, the backup image would be compressed to save space, but my main concern is that it shouldn't take a lot of time or learning curve to set the process up or manually start the process when it's time to backup. Help? [more inside]
