Hyper V Snapshots VS SCVMM 2008 Checkpoints

A customer asked me if there is any difference between  Hyper-V snapshot and SCVMM  checkpoint.

According to my research and testing and confirmation from Brandon Jiang from Microsoft, I would like to say there is NO difference between Hyper-V snapshot and SCVMM checkpoint if the Virtual Machine host is Hyper-V.

When we managed SCVMM checkpoints, we will be able to see those Snapshot we created in Hyper-V.

When we create a SCVM check points, we will also see the created checked point is stored as a new Hyper –V.

Apart from this point, as we know, SCVMM can also manage VMware ESX Server
hosts and Virtual Server 2005 SP1 hosts. 

So there is no difference between Hyper-V snapshot and SCVMM checkpoint if the Virtual Machine host is Hyper-V.
