The Advantages of SQL Server Snapshots:

Database snapshots are a great feature of SQL Server that are often underutilized. This feature of SQL Server allows for the instant creation of a point-in-time copy of a database that can then be used for several purposes such as reporting, auditing, refreshing Dev and Test environments, etc. At the point of creation, the snapshot is a read-only static view of the database, but a database snapshot also allows for data modifications that won’t affect the database from which the snapshot was created.

In addition, SQL Server has the ability to execute snapshots at a granularity level not possible with the Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS), so snapshots are definitely a feature you should be using in your environment.
