Common Virtual Server Agent Framework

Run an Incremental Backup Job While a Synthetic Full Backup is Running

For Virtual Server Agent subclients, you can run an incremental backup job while a synthetic full backup is running on the same subclient.

For more information, see Synthetic Full Backups FAQ: Can I run an incremental backup job while a synthetic full backup is running?

Amazon

Restore from a Replicated Snapshot Copy

You can perform the following types of restore operations from a replicated snapshot copy, from a different account:

  • Full instance restore
  • Attach the volume to an existing instance
  • Attach the volume to a new instance
  • Restore guest files and folders

For more information, see Replicating Snapshots with IntelliSnap for Amazon.

Microsoft Azure

Perform Application-Aware Backups of Azure Virtual Machines

You can perform application-aware backups for virtual machines that run under Microsoft Azure Resource Manager.

This feature is supported for both streaming and IntelliSnap backups. You can perform application-aware backups of Azure VMs from the CommCell Console and the Command Center.

For more information, see the following pages:

vCloud Director

Configure VM-Centric Operations for vCloud Director

You can configure the Virtual Server Agent (VSA) for vCloud Director to support VM-centric backup and restore operations using Indexing Version 2.

This feature is available for streaming backup operations performed using the Virtual Server Agent (VSA) with vCloud Director.

For a new Commvault deployment with Service Pack 16 or more recent service packs, Indexing Version 2 is enabled by default, and a new vCloud virtualization client automatically uses Indexing Version 2 to support VM-centric operations. For an existing Commvault deployment, you must enable Indexing Version 2.

For more information, see the following pages:

VMware

Deploy the Virtual Server Agent on a Windows Server 2019 Machine

For Service Pack 16 and more recent service packs, you can deploy the Virtual Server Agent on a machine running Microsoft Windows Server 2019.

For more information, see System Requirements for Virtual Server Agent with VMware.

Use the NAS Transport Mode for VMware Backup and Restore Operations

The NAS (network-attached storage) transport mode enables the proxy computer to read data directly from the network file server, without going through an ESX host or transferring data over the local area network (LAN).

You can use the NAS transport mode for the following operations:

  • Streaming backups
  • Backup copy operations
  • Restoring full VMs

VMware Cloud on AWS Supports Live Sync

VMware Cloud on AWS supports Live Sync replication and Live Sync Direct for snapshot-based replication.

For more information, see Support for VMware Cloud on AWS.

Virtual Machine Conversion (Cross-Hypervisor Restores)

Convert VMs from Azure to Amazon

When restoring an Azure virtual machine from a backup, you can restore the virtual machine as an Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instance or as an Amazon Web Services (AWS) instance that is part of a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).

You can perform conversions from a streaming backup, from a backup copy, or from an auxiliary copy.

For more information, see the following pages:

Convert Virtual Machines from Nutanix AHV to Azure

When restoring a virtual machine from a backup for Nutanix AHV, you can convert the VM to Azure Resource Manager.

This feature can be used to migrate workloads to Azure, or to recover VMs in Azure if the Nutanix AHV deployment is unavailable.

This option is available from the Command Center or from the CommCell Console.

For more information, see:

Convert Virtual Machines from Oracle VM to Azure

When restoring a virtual machine from a backup for Oracle VM, you can convert the VM to Azure Resource Manager.

This feature can be used to migrate workloads to Azure, or to recover VMs in Azure if the Oracle VM deployment is unavailable.

This option is available from the Command Center or from the CommCell Console.
