NetVault Plug‑in for Nutanix AHV: at a glance

Quest® NetVault® Backup Plug‑in for Nutanix AHV (Plug‑in for Nutanix AHV) uses a web-based user interface (WebUI) and automated workflow process to support a centralized way for configuring backup and restore policies for virtual environments. The plug-in offers a detailed level of control that minimizes downtime by letting you restore complete virtual machine (VM) images or individual disks. Through integration with a range of backup devices, your data is protected and stored offsite to meet your disaster-recovery and business-continuity goals.

Key benefits
