In-Guest Agents

In some cases, high transaction virtual machines can be protected by installing an application or file system agent in the guest (source VM). This approach is useful when storage is presented directly to a virtual machine including RDMs, direct iSCSI, or NFS, or when the VM has a large database or large number of files. This can also be used to address VMs that do not tolerate a VMware snapshot no matter how brief the duration.
