Hi everyone, considering AHV hypervisor, which are the possible options to backup the virtual machines? As far as I know, the only certified backup software is commvault... but I was wondering if AHV/prism can do vm-level backup and which are the features (guest/application consistency, possibility to file level restore ecc....) and differences compared to Commvault. Thank you

Only 3rd party backup today is commvault.
AHV can do hardware-based snapshots with VSS and replicate them to 2nd site. The 2nd site can be our 1155 which is 1 node system. File level restore works as well in AHV but there is no indexing. You can have different retention policy on the local and the remote cluster.
