Yes, you can try and setup replication between those two systems. See Books online for topic on Replication for more details.

Or if that is just need to be backed up and used in case the main db fails, you can setup a scheduled job that backs up the db on a daily basis to a safer place and restore that in case the orginal one fails.

Hope that helps.
