Ghost Solution suite will give you the option of doing it via a server or locally ( DOS via bootable CD ) with support for firewire and USB devices as well as writing CDs/ DVDs

Acronis and others ave similar options

I recommend that you use Acronis products: www.acronis.com which is one of the leading and best products in the market.
Not only you can restore the image whenever you need, you can mount the image at any time, edit files in it, search files, restore individual files, ... from the image directly.
Moreover, you can use a unique feature called Secure Zone, which is basically a hidden parition on the HDD where you can save the image for immediate restoration (especially for users who travel).
You can restore the very same image to dissimlar hardware (different brand) using an addon called Universal Restore.
Of course, you can have all the backup, management, licenses, ... managed centrally.
I can talk a lot, but I would recommend giving the website a quick look first; it's well organized.
Best Regards,

Additionally you can use Paragon made Drive Backup 9.0: www.drive-backup.com
It does all you need. Simple, cheap and reliable product. They have been sharing it for free on Give  It Away Of the Day site and I have seen many good feedbacks.
