Why don't you developp the GUI only on web based techno (Python, PHP, or any
other)... this way you don't need any much GUI requirement on the serveur
itself... just connect it to the LAN (as it is a backup system I supposed it
is :) and have it managed via web based UI... you would only need a web
based architecture installed on the serveur which do not require any GUI
component... on the serveur itself...

Another possibility would be to have your application separated in a
serveur/client architecture.
This way you could simply developp your client part on any Desktop (with GUI
component) which would just need to interact with the serveur part of your
appli already running on your server without GUI... It is just a guess
