Built-in (native)
Cisco HyperFlex is capable of protecting individual VMs and groups of VMs by using a-synchronous remote replication techniques.

Once protection has been set up on a VM, Cisco HyperFlex periodically takes a replication snapshot of a running VM on the local cluster and replicates (copies) the snapshot to the paired remote cluster. In the event of a disaster at the local cluster, the most recently replicated snapshot of each protected VM is used to recover and run the VM at the remote cluster.

Optionally Cisco HyperFlex can quiesce the virtual machines through VMware vCenter integration before taking the replication snapshot.
