      I would think its on the hypervisor as well, however in the video training, she states that the proxy server is where the backup agent runs, the hypervisor is simply used to create a snapshot and allow access to it. She also states that the benefit is that you’ve removed backup processing from the hypervisor, which is what a client/agent does.

      I’m testing today and would choose A, Proxy Server.

    “Image-based backup operates at the hypervisor level and essentially takes a snapshot of the VM. It creates a copy of the guest OS and all the data associated with it (snapshot of VM disk files), including the VM state and application configurations. The backup is saved as a single file called an “image” and this image is mounted on the proxy server (acts as a backup client). The backup software then backs up these image files normally. This effectively offloads the backup processing from the hypervisor and transfers the load on the proxy server, thereby reducing the impact to VMs running on the hypervisor. Image-based backup enables quick restoration of a VM”. Module: Backup and Archive
