Replication of a clustered VM to a host machine outside the cluster.

Server2012r2 cluster with two host nodes and many clustered VMs.

For backup purposes, many of the VMs are not only part of the cluster but also are being replicated to a node outside the cluster, elsewhere on the network.

Is this a bad thing to do?  Can running VM replication from within a cluster to an outside node a possible source of problems on the cluster?

Thanks.

I'm not sure what you mean by replication vendor. I'm using standard hyper-v replication in server2012r2.

Do you mean the hardware vendor?

Thanks for your help.
