What are two benefits of virtual compatibility mode for RDMs, as compared to physical compatibility mode? (Choose two)
Allows the use of SAN-aware applications
Allows for cloning
Allows for the use of array-based snapshots
Allows for template creation of the related virtual machine

Physical Allows the guest operating system to access the hardware directly. Physical compatibility is useful if you are using SAN-aware applications on the virtual machine. However, a virtual machine with a physical compatibility RDM cannot be cloned, made into a template, or migrated if the migration involves copying the disk.
Virtual Allows the RDM to behave as if it were a virtual disk, so you can use such features as taking a snapshot, cloning, and so on. When you clone the disk or make a template from it, the contents of the LUN are copied into a .vmdk virtual disk file. When you migrate a virtual compatibility mode RDM, you can migrate the mapping file or copy the contents of the LUN into a virtual disk
