There are several.  Here are some threads culled from Google:

Clonezilla and MondoRescue are probably the 2 most popular.

Hi,

 

 

A good solution is always virtualize the physical Machine.

 

You can use convert to go from physical to virtual is pretty straight forward.

We have standardised with MondoRescue.  www.mondorescue.org

Very very good for doing OS Backups, DR, P2V, V2P, etc.

 

Or you can just use good old dump(8).
