I have had good experience with mondrescue (mondoarchive, mondorestore) 
for years. It's a free, active project.

See: http://www.mondorescue.org/

We are backing-up about 20 production servers (using cron jobs) weekly. 
Bare-metal recovery has been successful as well as cloning.

Their mailing list is helpful and polite.

I has saved my neck many times during the last 5 years.

Although I have no experience with mondorescue on Centos 7, I recommend 
it at least for the other versions.
