vdp disk space?

In vmware-data-protection-administration-guide-61

I can find the configurations:

I don‘t understand it.

VMs need 30T disk space to backup.

How should I configure it in VDP?

Does VDP need separate datastore?

What does this mean?

VMs need 30T disk space to backup.

Does VDP need separate datastore?

VDP VMDKs can reside on the same datastore as the VM or a datastore of their own.

I usually keep them on a different datastore probably residing on faster drives for better backup and restore performance.
