Is there a way to get cPanel to backup a different server?

i.e. dedicated backup server to handle backup load to keep backup service load from website server.

I have a customer with a nightmare directory structure that is killing backup and server load. I was hoping to keep the cPanel backup system as an option, but backup a different server, not the local one.

Thanks,
Chuck

There isn't a way to do this with the cPanel backup system as in order to reduce load impact the operation would have to take place remotely which isn't possible. @quietFinn's suggestion would be the best bet for reducing load impact.
