We know snapshots/checkpoints aren’t backups, but sometimes people don’t know this, and other times people forget to tidy up their snapshots. (Even worse when they don’t have Veeam ONE notifying them of this).
So the question today is, what’s the longest time you’ve seen a snapshot/checkpoint in use?
I’ve seen one customer environment whereby all VMs have multiple snapshots going back as far as 6 years, and counting! They’re engaged with VMware support due to the chain age and depth but they also can’t just take a backup and clear them down due to the lack of performance from the system now as a result!
