Why use snapshots?

If something goes wrong in your server with new updates or etc it is always good to have a snapshot ready. Snapshots can take you back to the point in time before the error occurred and gives you a second attempt before leaving your server corrupted. It can also be used to help with creating quick backups. Taking a snapshot does not affect the bandwidth of your virtual server and can capture large volumes of data at the same time.
