Whether your environment has grown enough to be ready to have a DR site or the scale of operations can no longer tolerate the loss of the site or maybe even a single application, the first question is “What are the options?”. And that is what we will talk about in this post.
Starting with AOS 5.10 Metro Availability is supported on Hyper-V.
Metro Availability is the solution if you are looking for minimal RPO and are preparing for a full scope DR scenario.
The next in line would be Async DR which is a scheduled based snapshots replications essentially.
Both MA and Async DR require a physical cluster. Since single-node clusters are not supported at this point with Hyper-V it would have to be at least a 3 nodes block.
What if you are not ready to invest in hardware and be bothered with its maintenance? There are more options such as leveraging the mighty private cloud. Replicate to AWS or Azure with Nutanix Cloud Connect feature. This would not be a DR solution, strictly speaking. Nonetheless, This will give you an off-site recovery option.
Lastly, Nutanix supports integration with 3rd party backup solutions, such as Veeam, CommVault, etc.:
