[ProgSoc] Backing up stuff from cloud servers (Jobsoc?)

I have a couple of Linode web servers containing data that’s reasonably important to me, and I’d like to be backing that up regularly onto hardware that I own. I figured a good and cheap way to do this would be to get an old laptop, put Ubuntu on it, write a script to do some rsyncs, and write another script to do some mysqldumps. Is this actually a good way? Is there something better?
If someone who knows a good and cheap way wants to set it up for cash, I’m all ears.
