No native backup support for Nutanix

Why: Seamless integration, optimized performance, granular recovery, compliance adherence, and vendor support contribute to a robust backup solution within the Nutanix VM environment.
Note: Currently it is supported by Storage Defender but it requires separate solution. It will be useful to have it as part of the standard SP4VE Solution.

Who Would Benefit:
IT administrators, system architects, data protection officers, end users, security teams, vendor support teams, and organizational leadership.

How It Should Work:
Native support snapshot ensures the backup solution aligns with Nutanix architecture, offering efficient management, rapid recovery, and enhanced business continuity through regular backups and quick restoration.

    IBM has evaluated the request, and has determined that it can not be implemented at this time. Our IBM Storage Defender Data Protect solution has this functionality available, as you mentioned. We will review this request and update it in the future or a new one may be submitted in 6 months.
