Other ones :

- Parted & QtParted 
- SystemImager      
- dd and  ssh :p)
- tar and ssh :p)
- G4U (Ghost For You)

It all depends of what you want to do...

Parted & QtParted for whole partitions.
SystemImager for saving few "kind of model config"  & many server-specific variants. Very efficient.
dd, G4U & Co if you want to be content-independent.
tar : who needs to present it :p) ?
