I need more then 1 job because I have some machines which use application aware processing and some of them are backing up transaction logs each hour. Some other machines need to have a different policy regarding backup copies (but I could create separate backup copy jobs for this).
When using one large backup job would you pull everything out of the same storage snapshot or would you tweak this?

By storage snapshot you refer to one of the storage devices we have a special integration with?
Not all my SQL servers have the same guest prosessing features, so I would need a seperate job for this exclusion then?
