You can use any linux backup method for this. If you enter the word "backup" you will find a lot of tutorials here at howtoforge. One solution might be e.g. backuppc. Or you go the traditional way and use tar.

Thanks Till!

I have read the article as below:

Back Up Linux And Windows Systems With BackupPC
Version 1.0
Author: Falko Timme

Falko said that 'BackupPC stores the backups in /var/lib/backuppc', I think it means that the backups will be stored in the remote server's hd, my server was in remote IDC, I want to use some ways, for example, to login remote server via putty to backup and to store backups in my local Linux or Windows computer, how to do that? I searched, but cannot find result, will you please give me a website linkage about the topic, thanks a lot!

backkuppc is exactly doing that. You just mix up server and client. The client is the computer were you want to make a backup from.
