If you just want to have an offline backup server, which would be brought online in case of a complete system failure of the primary, You may want to build a new machine with identical hardware and do a full system restore to it with a backup from the online server. You can implement a schedule that will include doing a restore from the primary server to the backup server at regular intervals, If the need is great enough, even a daily event. In the event of a failure where the backup server is brought online, the only data lost is that which was changed since the last restore to the backup server.
