The answer is: It depends ;-)
How fast are the ESX machines connected to the san? How fast is the SAN connected to the rest of the outside world? 1 GB? 10 GB? Type of iSCSI SAN? Spindles?
I guess you just have to check it out.

best regards,
Joerg

If you're able to present SAN LUNs to your backup server then you may use SAN mode to replicate your VMs. If you happen to install backup server on a VM, use Virtual Appliance mode, in all other cases feel free to use network mode.
