    You need to try something, many ways to do backups. Buy a product, read documentation, modify some (possibly open source) scripts. For opinionated advice customized to your environment, hire a consultant. Jan 20 '20 at 13:59

You need a backup solution, which can use Linux server as backup repository. Or you can configure CIFS(SMB) on Linux and most of backup solutions can utilise SMB.

For example VEEAM B&R can use Linux repositories - https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backup/hyperv/linux_server.html?ver=95u4
