Contributors netapp-manishc

BlueXP backup and recovery for VMs is a standalone virtual appliance (Open Virtual Appliance format) that provides data protection services for VMs and datastores on VMware Cloud on AWS and Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP.

  • You can backup only NFS type datastores on Amazon FSx.

  • You should be running ONTAP 9.10 or later to backup NFS datastores.

  • VMware Cloud comes with a pre-defined “CloudAdmin” role. The CloudAdmin role has the necessary privileges to create and manage SDDC workloads and related objects such as storage policies, content libraries, vSphere tags, and resource pools.

  • You can restore VMs and VMDK to their current/alternate location.
