VMware VDP

I'm currently testing the new backup appliance from VMware, VDP. I was wondering does anyone know if this will cause issues with backing up production VMs during production hours. I know that there will be more bandwidth due to the backup, but as far as the way the VM functions during the backup.

Its my understanding that the appliance takes a snapshot and pulls the data off, then deletes the snapshot.

Thanks in advance for the help.

so after the snapshot, the data being pulled off of it wouldn't cause the VM to freeze correct?
