FusionCompute includes a Virtual Resource Manager (VRM) and one or more Compute Node Agents (CNAs). VRM is a web-based management interface for servers and virtual machines. Servers can be grouped into clusters.
The FusionCompute platform provides allocated block tracking and changed block tracking.
Commvault Backup and Recovery
Commvault provides data protection and recovery for virtual machines running in the VRM.
You can perform full, incremental, differential, or synthetic full backups of virtual machines. The first backup of a virtual machine is always a full backup, regardless of the selected backup type. You can choose to perform application consistent or crash consistent backups.
You can restore full virtual machines or guest files and folders.
Only streaming backups are supported.
Commvault data protection operations are managed through the CommCell Console. You can use the CommCell Console to configure a virtualization client and other entities that are used to support operations.
A virtualization client is the access point for FusionCompute. You must define a virtualization client that provides access to a FusionCompute deployment through the VRM and provide user credentials that enable you to connect to the VRM.
When you create a FusionCompute virtualization client, the Commvault software automatically creates a FusionCompute instance, a backup set, and a default subclient that can be used to protect all virtual machines. You can create additional subclients to perform separate protection operations for different groups of virtual machines. For example, you can create different subclients for different protection levels, and use the default subclient to protect any remaining virtual machines.
