We just received our Equallogic SAN and are about to load new installations of Windows and Exchange server 2010.  My question comes in 2 main parts but mainly revolves around Snapshots.
What is the best way to do snapshots and the best way to configure the disks on the SAN

A. have the Exchange Database on a vhd handled by ESXi and snapshots done by Equallogic?
B. Exchange database handled via iSCSI on the Windows vm and use Equallogic Microsoft Exchange snap addin
C. some other config I haven't mentioned.
