Nutanix file share backup with EMC Networker

Hello,  It appears only a couple backup vendors support Nutanix.  We are migrating all our file shares over and I'm panicking because I don't know how we can backup the data.  Anyone else using Nutanix file shares with recommendations?

I don't use AFS. Why are you moving your filer data to Nutanix AFS if you don't have the backup piece figured out? I would think that lack of backup support would put the brakes on any migration. FWIW, putting all data on a VM works great for most use cases.

It looks like Rubrik does/will support it. https://next.nutanix.com/t5/Backup-and-Recovery/Backup-Acropolis-File-Services-AFS/td-p/21116

Veeam v10 should be able to do it, once it is released. https://forums.veeam.com/vmware-vsphere-f24/backup-nutanix-file-services-t43293.html

Commvault can do it. http://itbloodpressure.com/2016/07/13/backing-up-afs-with-commvault/
