A Best Practice to Schedule Cron Jobs on a Shared RedHat Linux Server

So where I work, we have a number of IT departments that share a RedHat Linux Enterprise server. We are all competing with our back up jobs for precious cpu and memory, along with anti-virus and other tasks that are needed.

Because of this, a backup job that would typically run a few hours takes at least 4 to 6 hours.

I'm familiar with mainframe environments where they schedule jobs or job scheduling because of limited resources.

Can anyone offer a best practice on how to manage this better?
