This section compares the I/O characterization between VMware vSphere Storage APIs - Data Protection (VADP) and transparent snapshots using PowerProtect Data Manager 19.9. You can infer from these results that with transparent snapshots, you overcome the penalties of the write and the read latencies. This result can reduce VM latency by up to five times and provide up to five times faster backups.
Disclaimer: These results compare PowerProtect Data Manager 19.9 with transparent snapshots backup performance (performance-optimized mode) to PowerProtect Data Manager with VADP backup performance. The results are based on Dell Technologies internal testing in August 2021.
