How Rubrik Live mount work on the Nutanix ESXI cluster (Near 0 Downtime)

The basic idea of an enterprise backup product is too stable backup and reliable restore at the event of failure. I have been working for multiple backup products from long time and almost utilized all the available feature with the products. so what I am trying to say is that with the most of the product for restoring data you have to begin the restore job which means you can’t simply browse the data on the storage and download or copy to another location. but now these capability is available with the Rubrik and it’s really saving a time to restore.

with Rubrik live mount, I can directly Mount the virtual machine from Rubrik itself. Rubrik will behave like storage and it supports Hyper-v and VMware.

these how Rubrik Live mount work
