Kafka Cluster Backup

Hi Team,

As we know Kafka itself does not provide native support for traditional backups. However, we can implement backup-like functionality using various approaches for keeping the data safe like Replication, Mirror Maker, Geo Cluster.
Is there any Kafka External Backup Tools/Export Connectors(Kafka Connect) to take the backup, Is it safe to take the backup for production Kafka cluster with third party tools?
