But even if you would do log backups... You still need to take an image backup at a certain point in time to truncate the logs... So where do you see the space savings? (Or are you talking about taking less image based backups, like only once a day versus x a day...)

I am not sure if truncating the logs before you actually take a full backup of the database is a good practice. Maybe Exchange admins will tell me differently that this is perfectly possible. I will need to steal their brain on this one

+1 I have slow storage, would be nice to do this as well. Whenever the snaps are removed (in VMware, not using storage integration) it freezes exchange randomly. Causing random user issues with outlook plugins.

Actually, this feature won't remove the need for VM snapshot creation and removal... we still need to create the full image-level backup periodically, as it captures the state to which the logs that will be backed up periodically for the next day would be rolled onto.
