Data Protection for Nutanix AHV Based VMs Version 1.1 Released

A bit more than a year ago I create a blog post around the Data Protection for Nutanix AHV Based VMs. Initially the data protection options available were the once built into the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform, Cloud options such as Azure and AWS and also one third-party vendor Commvault.

Over the past year a few more companies, Comtrade Software and Rubrik, have developed software or added functionality to existing software so they can also protect Nutanix AHV based VMs which is really good. In addition to that there are two more companies that has announced support in the near future.
