Clustered SMB3 File Shares - Backup Options?

We are staging a 3-node clustered (server 2012 R2) scale-out file server and a generic file server, and one of the hot topics is "how do we back the data up"? We are a VMware 6.0 shop and already have Veeam Enterprise backing up our vm's

What are our options in using Veeam to backup the data?
