Managing Backup Appliances

To be able to back up VMs residing on a Nutanix AHV cluster, you must add to the backup infrastructure a Nutanix AHV backup appliance that will process backup jobs and deliver backup traffic to backup repositories.

To add a Nutanix AHV backup appliance, you can either deploy a new Nutanix AHV backup appliance or connect an existing one. Note that you can add only one Nutanix AHV backup appliance for each Nutanix AHV cluster.
