mondorescue as image backup


what is the best way for me to use mondo-rescue as a means of backing up my linux servers (maybe windows servers too) and to quickly restore from backed up image if a server's fail. Especially in case of email server (zimbra) that attached to a SAN LUN as its /opt/zimbra partition?

i'm running data center virtualization with vsphere 4.1, so i can put all the images in its datastore (shared storage) so later i can just attach a VM with the same spec as its original server and restore onto it.
