HYCU – Up and Running in 15 Minutes

With reference to my last post (here) as we know HYCU is purpose build backup solution for Nutanix. But the best part of the solution is following the principal of Nutanix Solution.. which is simplicity, unlike any traditional solution you don’t need any special skill to install, configure and manage.. no more babysitting..

The interface design seems to follow Nutanix Prism concept of user experience. As it is version 1 the main focus was core backup engine and interface.. more feature can be expected in upcoming releases.

To make my point i was able to install/deploy, configure and backup/restore in approx 15 minutes.. cant believe watch video below.. { i have to cut some part to reduce the size and save waiting time  :‑P }
