1. A method for managing data protection services for data clusters, the method comprising:
identifying, by a mapping module of a data protection manager, an initial discovery event associated with a data cluster, wherein the initial discovery event comprises obtaining a registration request from the data cluster;
in response to identifying the discovery event, by the mapping module:
sending a request for currently deployed components to a data cluster manager associated with the data cluster;
obtaining data cluster component inventory information associated with the data cluster from the data cluster manager, wherein the data cluster component inventory information specifies hardware and software components of the data cluster;
mapping protection policy types to data cluster components of the data cluster using the data cluster component inventory information and component data protection information; and
initiating performance of data protection services for the data cluster components based on the mapped protection policy types.
