SUMMARY

What is application-aware protection?

ISSUE

Purpose

To provide details about application-aware protection

Description

Application-aware protection is a feature of VMware backups.  When you set credentials for your VMware virtual machines, the Unitrends Virtualization Protector discovers any applications hosted on your VMs and leverages VSS writers to quiesce data and perform any necessary post-backup processing, such as log truncation.

Application-aware protection is available only for VMware backups.  For details, see Setting VM credentials for application-aware protection in the Unitrends Administrator’s Guide.  To protect applications hosted on physical machines, run the appropriate application backups.
