I think you’re best bet would be to read through the nutanixbible.com to get a deep dive into the questions here and also reach out to a Partner or Nutanix SE that can spend the time to walk through all of these in detail for you. 

Thanks for replying ktelep,

i ll refer the bible as you said. but sorry to say there are no nutanix partners in my country -Sri Lanka-. best thing is readout bible first. i ll check.

Thanks for your support

  2. what are the backups & recovery methods in nutanix.
    1. Backup and recovery is based on Snapshot local or replicate to remote site or both, Async, Near Sync, or Sync. for more information: https://www.nutanixbible.com/4e-book-of-aos-backup-dr.ht
