Revision history [back]

Hi,

Vembu BDR supports image-level backups of virtual machines hosted on an ESX/ESXi host with SAN or iSCSI storage. Virtual machines can read data directly from shared VMFS LUNs, so backups are very efficient and do not put significant load on production ESX/ESXi hosts or the virtual network.

To know more about the transport modes in Vmware backup please refer the below blog

Normally if the Vmware host and Vembu BDR server reside in the same network then the LAN transport mode will be used for backup.From your post we understand that your backup server is in offsite location so the backup will need WAN setup to transfer the data.
