Here's a link to an auto-backup iapp: https://devcentral.f5.com/codeshare/f5-iapp-automated-backup-1114

We're doing our backups this way, though we don't have it set to copy them over to a file server yet (I'm doing it manually via Filezilla right now). If you do this you'll want to be sure and set pruning in the iapp options (only keep x number of backups) so you don't start running out of file space.

Hope this helps!
