How to clone Linux server?

Last Modified: 2016-10-03
This is using RedHat Linux Enterprise server 7.x. The server hardware is HP Proliant DL380 G7. We are thinking of cloning the whole server to another new server hardware. So far, not backup software is installed in this server. What would be the workable way to clone it? can we use rsync? or any proven commercial software.

Appreciate for any help.
