Hi @Amit_kumar

Nutanix provides a VSS provider with our Nutanix Guest Tools (NGT) which can leverage VSS while creating a Nutanix based snapshot. This is supported on AHV and ESXi. The process is called application consistent snapshots, and is controlled by leveraging Nutanix protection domains. You can find more details here:

These snapshots will be VM based, so cloning and recovery are at the VM level if you use our protection domain workflows. We are also working on integration to make backup and recovery leveraging native snapshots more granular (at the database level) in the near future.
