hello all 

i am in this tight situation. as i have AOS PRO license i only can do is Async replication but i really need to make the RPO 0 so, i am thinking to leverage application level replication.


for example 

in exchange application I want to leverage DAG replication method to be able to sync both main and DR site with RPO=0

so my question if i do this configuration and take out my exchange server from any protection domain, do you think Nutanix would still give me support if the replication process have a fault after time?

Hi Bereketsolomon,

What you can do for exchange application is to use Microsoft DAG replication technology for the availability which is fully supported by Microsoft and Nutanix. For the other VMs which does not have a native application replication tool, you can use Nutanix PD Async replication. 

It’s actually a Nutanix best practice to use DAG

For support, if replication stopped, it will depend on the issue if it apparently a DAG replication issue you can open a case with Microsoft if it is a gray area you can always call Nutanix support the will help identify the issue better.
