No it doesn't. Files, folders or full VMs only. You're looking for Systems Recovery...

For a lot of Linux variants, BE cannot backup files which are opened.  Hence, it is not possible to recover the Linux machine based on a BE backup.  The recommendation is that BE backups for Linux machines are for file/directory backups.  Never expect to recover your server.
