Barracuda Backup and Barracuda Backup Vx offer guest-level protection for Microsoft Hyper-V on Nutanix, using the Barracuda Backup Agent for Windows and Linux. Host-based protection is unavailable at this time as the Barracuda Backup Agent for Windows does not support SMB 3.0, which Nutanix uses in the Hyper-V cluster configuration. The following section provides guidance on a Microsoft Hyper-V environment.
In addition to providing protection for guest virtual machines (VM) running on Hyper-V, the Barracuda Backup Vx can be deployed to and run on it. The Backup Vx image is imported into Hyper-V where it can be configured like any other VM. Barracuda Backup and Barracuda Backup Vx support the following versions of Microsoft Hyper-V:
- Windows Server Hyper-V 2016
- Windows Server Hyper-V 2012 R2
- Windows Server Hyper-V 2012
- Windows Server Hyper-V 2008 R2
- Windows Server Hyper-V 2008
Recover Microsoft Hyper-V Data, Applications, and Virtual Machines
Barracuda Backup provides several options for restoring data, applications, and VMs originating from Microsoft Hyper-V. Complete VM, as well as granular file and folder restoration can be initiated from the Restore > Restore Browser page. Hyper-V VMs running Microsoft Windows operating systems can be recovered using Barracuda’s Physical-to-Virtual (P2V) ISO, where they can be restored back to a Microsoft Hyper-V or VMware vSphere host. Individual files and folders can be restored or downloaded directly by browsing through the agent source for that VM.
