You need to have thirdparty backup applications to have the hyperv backup.
We are using Commvault solutions.

Good Luck

I use Acronis® Backup & Recovery 10 Advanced Server Virtual Edition.  You just have to install the program on the host OS, no backup agents needed on the individual VMs.  It can be set to back up automatically on whatever schedule you would like.
