Hi Cloud builder
While I was reading the NTNX Bible they said that the VM snapshot being taked by freezing the VM, unlikely with ESXi where the VM is stunned » Delta created for I/Os and then VMDK is consolidated
My question while on NTNX Platform how/when the I/O takes place while VM is being snapshot’ed while its freeze.

Ok, so I do not have much for you and I apologise but I was able to find something.
You know how hypervisor level snapshots and storage-level snapshots work differently traditional (I am tempted to put that word in quotes) environment and thus have different implications on the in-gues applications? For example a VM level snapshot would require a freeze of the I/O but a volume level snapshot would come not noticeable or nearly not noticeable?
Similar thing here. Nutanix is an HCI platform so we can operate with the block map on the storage layer and skip the stun entirely.
That’s what the Nutanix Bible paragraph meant. I sincerely hope that helps.
