Snapshots capabilities are native to your hypervisor. ACS just uses API of hypervisors to
instruct it to perform snapshot.
The most popular snapshot is disk snapshot, where disk is cloned and cloned disk copy moved
to secondary storage via SSVM. This copy then can be used to produce new volume or template.
