Depending on how you've setup your backup-server (physical/virtual) you could just save an image of the server.

The obvious question is:
against what are you protected your data?

If you store an offsite backup of /var /lib /backuppc  and  your  main  datacenter dies, you need to restore not only the data but also the servers. So you should have a backup plan for all your servers (including backuppc)

I wouldn't  want to rsync  /var/lib/backuppc as this is not in a format that can be readily used.
What I'm after is a ready  to use snapshot, As it looks on the server I'm backing up or what it would look like if using the archive host feature but just not in tar format.
