When we do replications to DR site, can Veeam utilize array hardware snapshots, for instance, NetApp filer's snapshots? How Veeam achieve that?

VAO v2 doesn't utilize these however we made a great announcement a few weeks ago for v3.

OK
What differences really are between using array snapshots and veeam/vmware snapshots when doing VAO, or what benefits can we get by using array snapshots?

Thanks,

VAO will work with both snapshots created natively by netapp or ones created with veeam, so when it comes to VAO and its ability to orchestrate - there's no difference. VAO does not orchestrate the creation of snapshots, it only orchestrates the recovery using the already created snapshots.
using array snapshots can lower your RPO and minimize the impact on production workloads, but this decision is not related to using VAO per se.
