Near sync and backup showstopper


Badge +1
Using near sync replication in AOS 5.5 means that normal snapshots on VMs cannot be initiated by external backup tools like comtrade, rubrik

This is a bit of a showstopper. If we need an RPO of 15 minutes on AHV, we have to use nearsync - but then we can't backup VMs off the cluster

When will Nutanix resolve this rather major downside?

vStorage - Agree that this is a major disadvantage. It is on the roadmap to be addressed. Currently it's scheduled for the 5.5.2 release.
