I think 2000 euros for a server that will only do backups is expensive.
We could buy a cheap server like this on ebay :
add 4 sata drives and do the same backups.

If we have 2000 euros for a server, I think it would be better to buy
a fast server for packagers, with 12 cores, 32GB of RAM and one disk.
If we have more money we can replace disks in build nodes with 240GB SSD.
