Summary
Partial (Protection)
Details
Multiple VMs can be grouped together in a Nutanix protection domain enabling them to be operated upon as a single entity with the same RPO. This is useful when trying to protect complex applications such as Microsoft SQL Server-based applications or Microsoft Exchange. The main advantage of using a protection domain approach of grouping VMs versus the traditional SAN approach of consolidating different VMs on to a single LUN is VM portability.
