You want a RAID-1 system, which mirrors the drive.  Which one to recommend depends on your budget, how many users you have accessing it simultaneously, what applications are running on it, and the time you have to bring the backup online.

well i guess raid-1 would do it, cause i only need a exact copy of it on another hard drive,
it will be mostly for personal usage and some webserver stuff but not too much,
