Yes, you can do this and I suggest using scp to move the files. I discussed this in another thread:
You'll have to setup SSH Keys between the machines so they won't require a password for authenticating, then put a cron into root crontab such as the following:
Here replace IP
with the IP for the remote machine that you will be scping the files to for the backup. Replace /backup
with the name where you want those files to be copied. This cron would be placed onto the source cPanel server. The time interval would copy the files at 20:00 server time (10pm server time) each day. If you wish it to be a different time, then you could revise the interval. I suggest picking a time at least 10-12 hours later than the backups normally run locally to ensure the backup has completed before it copies the existing files over to the remote machine.
The root crontab is located at /var/spool/cron/root and can be edited either at that location or by issuing "crontab -e" instead. I prefer vi, so I use "vi /var/spool/cron/root" to edit it directly rather than "crontab -e" which on some systems opens it in nano.
Please make a backup of the crontab prior to editing it:
cp /var/spool/cron/root /root/rootcrontab.bak110713
