VMware Snapshots and Oracle non-clustered Independent Persistent disks

“To beat (something) to boredom” – To linger over or discuss something so long and to such a tedious and laborious extent that the subject is no longer of any interest or relevance and induces a bad migraine!!!

Yes, much has been written and spoken about and VMware Snapshots and Independent Persistent disks but I still get questions from customers and field regarding that, so yes, this is yet another blog to attempt to explain this in detail.


Key points to take away from this blog

Given a VM’s with non-shared dependent  and non-shared independent-persistent vmdk’s, taking a VMware snapshot will result in

  • VMware snapshot for dependent vmdk’s
  • VMware snapshot operation will ignore the independent-persistent vmdk’s
