    Hello,
    I think it's a good idea implement the option to backup all data to another server remotely (FTP, OneDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox, etc...).

    That's already possible, ISPConfig can run a shell script to mount a backup drive when needed. See page 277 of the ISPConfig manual.

    But in doing so, it will be on the server itself.

    No, it won't be on the server when you mount an FTP, NFS, SMB or any other kind of network drive share.

    I'll need to know how this works best.
    Thank you.

    ISPConfig backs up to a directory, which by default is usually on a local filesystem/device. To store the backups on a remote server/service, you create a script which mounts the remote server/service on the directory where your backups are made, and create another script which unmounts that directory, then enable the server config option for the backup directory being a mount point. The specific commands needed depends on what type of remote mount you are setting up. There have been examples posted to the forums here, or see the manual.
