Deployment for Nutanix AHV

The Virtual Server Agent can be installed on one or more machines, so that those machines can serve as VSA proxies. A VSA proxy manages backup and restore operations for guest VMs in your environment, eliminating the need to install agents on guest VMs.

Install the Virtual Server Agent (VSA) on a Linux or Windows virtual machine in the Nutanix cluster that contains the virtual machines to be protected.

You can deploy one or more VSA proxies in the Nutanix cluster. All VSA proxies for the cluster must be added to the Nutanix AHV virtualization client.

You can configure application-aware backups using the Virtual Server Agent to protect application data without installing guest agents on virtual machines.
