Live Image Backup?

I have used Acronis True Image Echo Server to backup a RHLE server live to an image file. The purpose of the backup is development without having to mess with the actual server. Disk cloning is not an option because I have to keep server downtime to minimum. I was wondering if there is any open source alternatives.
