"Now let's assume you have a dedicated Linux server (rented or
co-location) that is located in some provider's data center which
is normally a few hundred kilometers away from your office or home.
Now you want to make an image of that system so that you have a
back up in case your server crashes, you accidentally deleted all
you customers' web sites, etc. (I'm sure you have enough fantasy to
make up some horror scenarios for yourself here...). Creating such
an image is no problem, even on a remote system that is in a data
center, it is all described in the "Creating Images Of Your Linux
System With SystemImager" tutorial.
