Welcome to the Nutanix NEXT community. To get started please read our short welcome post. Thanks!
Our customer would like to utilize the snapshot feature on Nutanix AHV as backup solution.
They would like to know if they could create Application Consistent snapshot.
I did some research.
1. In the Web Console Guide which mentioned about Application-Consistent Snapshots
"This option is available for ESXi only; it is not supported for Hyper-V or AHV. However, athird-party product could be used to invoke VSS when the hypervisor is Hyper-V or AHV."
2. QEMU should have guest agent and which the VirtIO Driver should have included.
So, my question is. Can Nutanix AHV support Application Consistent snapshot.
We don't support application consistent snapshots on AHV today - it'll be supported via nutanix guest tools in the future.
is there a roadmap where this feature is scheduled will be added? or is a a blue sky thing?
Very near future.
