Hi Christy,

no, SAP does not directly leverage these functions.

But none the less, it is up to you to use these on your system. I regulary use the snapshot functionality when applying Support Packages. In case somehing goes wrong a snapshot is the easiest way to roll back the import process (not exactly the best choice when talking about production and users keep on working while importing).

Have a look at this [document |http://download.microsoft.com/download/d/9/4/d948f981-926e-40fa-a026-5bfcf076d9b9/SAP_SQL2005_Best Practices.doc]. It deals with Best Practices and also covers snapshot, replication and mirroring.
