Is there a way to replicate a SQL server database to another SQL server with the same hardware and software? I want a live copy of the data up to date in case something goes wrong and we need to switch to the backup server.

Yes. You should be looking at database mirroring. It is a native feature of SQL Server 2005 and higher and will keep an exact duplicate of the database on the second server.

===========
It is possible to replicated and SQL server to another by using a third party software. However, you have to research for the best software to do that because most software used for backup are expensive. Just choose the best and suits your budget.
