Protecting Nutanix AHV VMs

In this article

    To back up a Nutanix AHV VM using Mine with Veeam, perform the following steps:

    1. [This step applies only if you have connected an existing backup server while deploying Mine with Veeam]

    Install Nutanix AHV Plug-in. For more information, see the Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV User Guide, section Installing Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV.

    1. Add to the backup infrastructure the Nutanix AHV cluster where the VM is deployed. For more information, see the Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV User Guide, section Adding Nutanix AHV Cluster.
    2. Deploy an AHV backup proxy in the Nutanix AHV cluster and add it to the backup infrastructure. For more information, see the Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV User Guide, section Adding AHV Backup Proxy.
    3. Create a backup job to create restore points for the VM. For more information, see the Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV User Guide, section Creating Backup Jobs.

    Once the backup job successfully creates a restore point for the VM, you can perform the following operations to restore the VM:

    • Restore the entire VM to an AHV cluster. For more information, see the Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV User Guide, section Entire VM Restore.
    • Immediately restore the VM directly from compressed and deduplicated backup files to Nutanix AHV, VMware vSphere and Hyper-V environments. For more information, see the Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV User Guide, section Instant Recovery.
    • Restore the VM to Microsoft Azure. For more information, see Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV User Guide, section Restore to Microsoft Azure.
    • Restore the VM to Amazon EC2. For more information, see the Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV User Guide, section Restore to Amazon EC2.
    • Restore the VM to Google Cloud. For more information, see the Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV User Guide, section Restore to Google CE.
    • Restore items of applications such as Microsoft Active Directory, Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle Database. For more information, see the Veeam Backup for Nutanix AHV User Guide, section Application Items Restore.
