Hello there @berbor

Simon here from SnapShooter, we are a 3rd party backup provider for DigitalOcean, we have taken over 4.7million snapshots for customers so thought I would jump on and answer.

We don’t find that snapshots slow down a server. If a server is under load (disk writes) the time for the backup can increase. We wrote an article on Droplet Snapshot time

Let me know if you have more questions related.
