Riak backups

If I might add up to it, I would like to know specifically what would be 
a proper way to have a replication site of a cluster, it seems to me it 
is easier to backup the replicated site than the cluster itself.

We replicate using a Java scheduled job but it requires us to mark each 
key with an specific index (lets say; the version of the key), so we 
know what version we were left at on the previous copy and then we 
continue where we were before to the current-1 version.

If we could replicate the cluster in a sort of a site-to-site 
replication, increasingly, then I would think it will be the perfect 
solution as it will be way easier to backup from the replicated site.
