Yes. Rapid Recovery can restore virtual machines using any restore method available to Nutanix using the HyperV or VMware hypervisors.

NOTE: Nutanix Acropolis is not a supported hypervisor for virtual export, but bare metal recovery should work for restore.

Yes. Rapid Recovery supports backup of Virtual Machines with supported operating systems using the agent software.  Agentless backup is fully supported for Hyper-V and VMware only. For VMware agentless backup, Rapid Recovery will incorrectly show disk usage due to a limitation between VMware and NFS datastores. More info about the limitation can be found here

NOTE: Nutanix Acropolis is not a supported hypervisor with Rapid Recovery. It has worked for customers using the Rapid Recovery agent and a specific VirtIO driver provided by Nutanix.

Rapid Recovery also supports the protection and recovery of Resilient File System (ReFS) volumes for Windows Server 2012, 2012 R2, and Windows Server 2016.

The server can be backed up, but Lotus Notes does not support VSS and we do not interact with the Lotus Notes / Domino service. For more information on how to back up non VSS-aware applications please see Backing Up Non VSS-Aware Applications

This value sets how many days of events will be stored in the MongoDB, which populates the Events tab in the Core UI. This setting is defaulted to 30 days and can be adjusted in the core Settings of the Rapid Recovery Console. Adjust the "Retention Period" value to the number of days you would require. Keep in mind that a large value will degrade performance of the Core UI over time.

The AppAssure 5 license is valid with Rapid Recovery installations and does not require any extra work to be fully functional.

Parallel restore allows multiple disks to be simultaneously restored. All disks will restore in parallel, but not the logical volumes.

This puts in place a data cap on a per replication job situation. Once the configured amount is put in the place and exceeded, the running replication will cancel, the agent will then pause its replication, and an event will trigger to notify the action happened.

Yes, Rapid Recovery supports one-time and standby virtual exports to Windows Server 2012 and R2 CSVs.

SharePoint 2007, 2010, and 2013 are supported with Doc Retriever.

In the main viewing area, the default content is the new Core dashboard, which displays a set of real-time reports on your system. The default dashboard reports include recent transfer job status, per machine transfer, a repository overview, and connectivity state for protected, replicated, and recovery points-only machines. You can also drag and drop to move the location of one of the reports elsewhere on the dashboard, to order the reports in a manner most effective for your use

Rapid Recovery supports one-time and virtual standby Gen 1 Hyper-V exports to hosts on Windows 8/8.1, Server 2008/R2, and Server 2012/R2. Gen 2 Hyper-V exports are only supported on Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 R2 for Microsoft supported OSs.

This operation performs background jobs to include the fixboot command, writes the boot.ini with parameters, and sets the boot path in the MBR. After the BMR is completed and new or updated drivers are injected for the hardware this button should be executed.

VMware vSphere on ESX or ESXi 4.0, 4.1, 5.0, 5.1, and 6.0 is supported for one-time and virtual standby exports.

VirtualBox 4.2.18 or higher needs to be installed on the Core in order to perform one-time or virtual standby exports. Please review VirtualBox documentation for supported OSs and necessary configurations.

Enabling the quiescing snapshot feature flushes the database's data and allows Rapid Recovery to create recovery points with the valid databases.

The Rapid Snap for Virtual feature of Rapid Recovery lets you protect virtual machines (VMs) on a VMware ESXi host without installing the Rapid Recovery Agent software. This feature, Rapid Snap for Virtual, is also called agentless protection.

There are a minimum number of retries built into the restore functionality to avoid a disruption in the restore. The main variable to keep an eye on are network latency and packet drops during the restore.

You can schedule a report available from the Core Console. The report then generates on the schedule you defined until you pause or delete the report. More information is in the "Scheduling a report" section of the Rapid Recovery user guide.

One-time and virtual standby exports can be performed for VMWare Workstation 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11.

1GB of memory is required to start the Universal Recovery Console. The machine receiving the restore should meet all protected Rapid Recovery Agent specifications (CPU, memory, storage, network). For the cloud restores, a sufficiently fast and stable network should be available to process the job.
