Data Protection

Flexible VM-centric policies enable you to protect virtualized applications with different recovery point objectives (RPOs) and recovery time objectives (RTOs).

Native Integration

Protect applications with local, remote, or cloud-based backups, eliminating the need for a secondary solution.

Long Term Retention

Add capacity-heavy nodes to existing web-scale Nutanix systems to support nearly unlimited retention of snapshots.

Nutanix Metro Availability

The industry’s first hyperconverged synchronous replication solution provides high availability with zero RPO and near-zero RTO.

One Minute RPO

Nutanix's VM-centric policy combines with our light-weight snapshot (LWS) technology to deliver near-synchronous replication without latency and distance restrictions.

Backup & Recovery

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, Veeam, and more.

Flexible Options

Backup VMs and applications to local systems, a Nutanix system at a remote site, or a public cloud service provider such as AWS.

Improved Service Levels

Dramatically improve RTO and backup storage efficiency with the industry’s first redirect-on-write algorithm for hyperconverged platforms.

Third-party Integration

Integration with VSS and 3rd-party tools enables features such as application-consistent backups.

WAN Optimized

Compression and data deduplication reduces storage footprint and network bandwidth by as much as 70%.

Centralized Control

Backup policies for multiple sites are managed centrally, enabling simplified workflows and control for protecting applications.

Simplified Management

Schedule backup policies with just a few clicks, and recovering VMs from local or remote snapshots in two easy steps.

Disaster Recovery

Nutanix enables you to build affordable and flexible disaster recovery (DR) solutions without the overhead of traditional DR. Customize your configuration for different RPO and RTO requirements to meet your application needs, leveraging your existing IP network.

Business Continuity

Ensure continuous availability for business-critical applications through planned events and unplanned disasters.

Intuitive Management

Simple and intuitive centralized management with two-click infrastructure failover and customizable policies.

Customizable Options

Leverage flexible topologies and configurations, including asymmetric Nutanix clusters, hub-and-spoke mode and fully connected mesh deployments.
