Can the Managed Backup Client be installed on a NAS file server to back it up to user desktop machines or other dedicated backup servers?

Managed Backup can be installed on Linux or Windows based NAS servers. It is possible to backup a NAS file server over the network to other user desktops or a dedicated backup server. If Managed Backup cannot be installed on a NAS filer, it will be possible to install Managed Backup on a PC, mount the NAS server and then back it up. In the case of NAS file servers, open file backup may not happen if a file is being continuously modified by an application. In Windows Storage Server, it is possible to use the Volume Shadow Copy feature to support Open File backups. In NAS filers where files are not modified continuously Managed Backup’s open file backup should suffice.
