Crash Consistent
File System Consistent (Windows)
Application Consistent (MS Apps on Windows)
By default Datrium DVX creates crash consistent restore points.

Datrium provides a VSS Agent that can optionally be installed inside Windows Server Guest VMs to create file system-consistent as well as application-consistent backups for specific Microsoft applications.

Datrium created its own VSS provider instead of leveraging the VMware vSphere VSS, and due to this native integration with the ”datastore” and the “snapstore,” the solution eliminates VM “stuns” and performance degradation that occur with vSphere snapshots.

Datrium VSS agent v1.6 provides file system-consistent backups for Windows Server 2012/2012R2/2016 and application-consistent backups for MS SQL Server 2012/2016 as well as Microsoft Exchange Server 2013/2016. Datrium VSS agent v1.6 remedies some minor issues in handling log truncation of databases having special characters in database names.

Datrium DVX introduced a CLI command argument that allows log truncation for Microsoft SQL and Exchange after taking an app-consistent snapshot.

When configuring a Protection Group, VSS can be enabled for individual VMs by marking the "Use VSS" checkbox.
