Acropolis-Backup-and-Recovery Backup and Recovery

Delivers rich native integration of ecosystem partners and backup technologies


Enterprise-grade backups with single pane of glass management provide the ultimate simplicity in management, while seamless backups of data to public cloud services provide high availability. Take an unlimited number of snapshots of virtual disks and VMs locally, or replicate them to a remote site or a cloud service such as Amazon Web Services (AWS). With support for VMware vStorage API for Data Protection (VADP) and application-level consistent snapshots using Microsoft Volume Shadow Services (VSS), your environment works seamlessly with Symantec NetBackup, CommVault Simpana, Hycu, Veeam, and more.

Converged Local Backups

Unlimited, Enterprise-grade Backups

VM-centric snapshots and integrated workflows with single pane of glass management deliver RPO in minutes.

Intelligent Disk-balancing

In heterogeneous clusters, Nutanix disk-balancing ensures that the data stored on nodes is proportional to the node storage capacity, increasing the effective storage available for snapshots.

Uncompromised Performance

Nutanix Time Stream’s redirect-on-write algorithm, VM-centric snapshots and file-level recovery provide optimum operational efficiency.

Simple Operations

Create virtual copies of data and roll back state with a single click.

Self-service File Recovery

End users can recover independent files inside a VM without having to recover the entire VM and without administrator intervention.

Near Unlimited Scalability

Seamlessly add Nutanix hyperconverged appliances to existing clusters to support nearly unlimited retention of snapshots and fast recovery.

Advanced Capabilities

Remote Backups

Integrated workflows simplify remote backups and one-click recovery.

Customized Scheduling

VMs can be backed up or asynchronously replicated to another customer owned datacenter based on a user-defined schedule.

WAN Optimized

During replication, data is compressed and replicated at the sub-block level for maximum efficiency and lower WAN bandwidth consumption.

Flexible Replication Topologies

Replication topologies are flexible and bi-directional, enabling one-to-one, one-to-many and many-to-many (e.g., hub-and-spoke, full-mesh) deployments.

Ecosystem Integration

Nutanix hyperconverged solutions integrate with popular offload capabilities, including VMware API for Array Integration (VAAI) and Microsoft Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX) to create clones in a matter of seconds with minimal overhead.

Support for vStorage API for Data Protection (VADP) and application-level consistent snapshots through Volume Shadow Services (VSS) provide full integration with third-party tools such as Symantec NetBackup, Veeam, Commvault and VMware SRM.

Integration with Commvault IntelliSnap delivers Commvault backup capabilities with enterprise grade storage features from Nutanix for a highly efficient backup solution.
