Backup proxy is the key component that sits between your data center and Druva Cloud and is responsible for performing backup and restore of virtual machines.


The Backup proxy is a client-side component that you deploy in Prism. The proxy registers your Prism and then discovers all the virtual machines in the Prism. The proxy is responsible for the backup and restores of the virtual machines. The Backup proxy performs a backup of virtual machines, based on the backup schedule. It performs deduplication and compression and then stores the virtual machine recovery point in the assigned storage in Druva Cloud.
