Offsite backup to another machine?

Hi good day.
Quick question.
Is it possible to copy or clone the entire linode server and use that copy to install to a local machine or like a vmware.
I have read that offline backup is possible but my question is can it be installed to other machine?

As far as installing it on another machine goes, I came across two resources that discuss this specifically, which may help point you in the right direction:
