Backing up SQL server vm best practices
We have a very large and very busy SQL server. It appears that when backing up the whole VM it takes quite a bit of time! We are talking a few TBs. I have noticed that the snapshot grows so large from the backup, that it has trouble removing it after the backup. Is there a better method for this. Perhaps a filesystem backup on a VM? Whats the best method for a large SQL server?

You should look into the MSSQL integration module which works great. It also offers more granular restore capabilities and high performance backup.
Using VEPA for the DR part (OS disks) and the MSSQL integration for the database is valid concept.
