Best practices for backing up Confluence running in a Hyper-V VM

We're running Confluence 4.2 inside of a Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V VM. We're currently using backup software that backs up our VMs to backup this VM. We have a local installation of MySQL running inside the VM that is used by Confluence. We're backing up the Confluence nightly using its built-in backup manager. We simply saves these inside of the VM and backup the VM. Is this okay? Should we be doing anything else? Thanks!
