However since we deployed VEEAM we have come across a number of contradictory and frankly scary papers/posts about why you should NOT backup Oracle using any product that uses VMware snapshot technology.

- oracle VM is Windows (sounds obvious, but better repeat it)
- Oracle is at least 11g
If the VM is linux based, you would still need to use pre-freeze scripts, search on google about "oracle backup mode", basically is a command to put each tablespace you need to save into backup mode, so it can be safely copied while guaranteing data consistency.
