'Clonezilla-live' is a bootable image that will do a menu-driven image
copy to another disk or network storage. It will do a single disk at a
time (no raid), or you can manually pick partitions.   It knows enough
about most filesystems to skip the unused portions.
'Relax-and-Recover' (ReaR) has a slightly different approach.  It will
create a bootable image including scripts to reconstruct your
filesystem layout (including multiple disks, lvm, raid, etc.), and
then restore a tar-type backup onto it.  The actual backup part has
several options included, or you can stop after the filesystem is
ready and do your own restore.
