    I do not understand why this is not A & C
    Clone’s can be powered on in an isolated network. Snapshots can only be reverted to (Thus affecting live service of the server to do any testing)

  2. Gary says:

    Well I think it is D because you can capture the virtual memory in the snapshot and it provides point in time recovery. With a clone, the processes running on the server, during the time when there were performance issues, could be killed when you restart/power ON a clone.
