Fast

Incremental backups are done at the block level instead of the file level.  Block level backup provides several advantages including the speed of completing a backup operation, a drastic reduction in disk and network I/O, the ability to perform backups as often as every 15 minutes and no performance penalty for servers having a large number of files.
