advice on incremental backups to NFS storage

apollo_jessieapollo_jessie EntrantInactive User Role Beginner
I'd like to get some advice and pointers from fellow users of percona xtradb and xtrabackup.

I am working on backing up a fairly busy database server(4.8TB) to an NFS export hosted on a NAS4Free server.
I am not allowed to take it offline during the backup.

Other than making sure to mount the NFS share with noac,noasync are there other things I should watch out for?
(from percona post:

Also, should I use xtrabackup or innobackupex? Am I correct in my understanding that xtrabackup is used to backup
a database with purely innodb tables? In my case, the main database(4.5TB) is all innodb but the other databases like
mysql contain myisam tables. So in my case, I should use innobackupex to backup all databases?

Database server information:
