Instant Cloning on vxRail, not Horizon

Is there a way to accellerate the cloning process for VMs on vxRail?  This would be regular server VMs, Horizon is not involved.

How long does it take?

1 to 1.5 hours for a 600G vm.  All flash.  The environment runs jobs, then we blow it away and redeploy with powerCLI off templates.

Yeah that's crazy long, I know 100 gb horizon clones finish in under 1 min, This says director but its the same logs every where I think

VMware Knowledge Base

See if you can find the guest customization log, it should show what happens right after the vmfork operation.
