It has been awhile but last year I did work with partimage which allowed
you to backup the partitions of a system over the network to another
system.  This did require taking the system down to boot from the CD.  

The main thing you needed was the partition layout for the system so
when you went to restore things you could setup the drives correctly.  

Depending on the applications being used this may be a solution or part
of a solution.  Database backups/restores are notorious for being
difficult to setup and execute.  Simple file system backups do not
suffer some of the same restrictions that database backups suffer from.
