Best backup plan for my VMware setup

Currently I have 3 VMware hosts (2 Mac Minis and a Dell Server) with a pair of Synology NAS units running in high availability mode.  As I found out the hard way - it turns out a backup is still required as my datastore got corrected and I narrowly escaped some serious dataloss.  Perhaps not using the high availability mode is best and breaking them up into two separate NAS units with a primary and backup.  I'm not sure how backing up virtual machines works so please run me through my options for software and all.  This is a home office setup (I go all out with my stuff) so there is something to be said for being budget conscious.

The one that runs on my Synology NAS seems perfect. Not tooooooo bad on the price either.

While I haven't gotten a chance to fully play with Nakivo I have already purchase a few licenses and am moving forward with it since it runs on Synology and can utilize systems I already have.
