I've been speaking with many partners about this over the last few months. Instead of going with a NAS for backup, for just an incremental increase in cost to go with an x86 server with some disk, Server 2016, and ReFS. I say it's an incremental increase because now with ReFS you likely won't need as much disk as you would with a NAS (whereas without ReFS you'd probably need the same amount of space in both solutions). Plus then you get an increase in performance for things like Instant VM Recovery and SureBackup.
