Application Consistent snapshot on Nutanix Acropolis

Hi,

 

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, a
third-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.

Hi @himng

 

We don't support application consistent snapshots on AHV today - it'll be supported via nutanix guest tools in the future.

 

Thanks
