Application Consistent (MS Apps on Windows)
HPE StoreVirtual Application-aware Snapshot Manager (AASM) integrates with VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V to enable consistent volume snapshots of VMs. Because integration with VMware Tools and thus Microsoft VSS is leveraged, application-consistent snapshots can be created for MS SQL and MS Exchange.

To use Application-managed Snapshots, the HPE StoreVirtual Application-aware Snapshot Manager (AASM) is installed on the vCenter Server and configured with the HPE StoreVirtual Management Group’s credentials to communicate with HPE StoreVirtual VSA. Additional configuration is performed within the HPE StoreVirtual Centralized Management Console.
