In this technical paper, we discuss the VMware vSphere VM snapshot operation and its impact on the performance of guest applications and how it affects other VM provisioning operations. Our study explores these performance aspects in VMFS, vSAN, and vVOL environments with a variety of workloads and provides recommendations. In addition, we look at VM snapshot performance in a vSphere/Kubernetes environment.
