Exchange VMs are hosted on Vmware hosts and the underlying storage is all flash.
Exchange server backups are taken at VMware level (snapshot based) and exchange DB level.
We are considering putting exchange 2016 DB and log drives on thin provisioned disks.
Is there any recommendation from Microsoft in regards to thin provisioning disks at Vmware level and exchange LUNs at storage array level?
And are there any negative effects of doing this?
