A more common approach is backing up directly to some other storage.

Best practice is to backup to storage not related to production storage.

As Timothy has mentioned you will have to use directsan mode. This is configured as default. More info can be found in the userguide: https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... tml?ver=95

If you use NAS and a physical server, you'r traffic will flow over the network if using Direct NFS or NBD transport mode. However, normally a production NAS (e.g Netapp) is connected to a separate Ethernet Network / separate switches and so in Direct NFS mode, the data should only flow over that specific Ethernet Network and not the production network/

I guess LAN-free is an interesting topic but for me personally, I think it is better to have a good backup stored with the correct retention and applying the 3-2-1 rule (https://www.veeam.com/blog/how-to-follo ... ation.html), instead of focusing LAN-free.
