Well, there is no point using VM as a proxy if you want to utilize direct-SAN - VM proxies are used for hot-add mode. It would be better to deploy a dedicated physical server for a direct SAN access.Would you suggest a Veeam VM Proxy (Win2012 R2) for each host?
Please see the requirements:One other question will I need to go full SQL Server or will the free version be ok for that many VM's?
700 VMs is quite a lot.Due to its limitations, Microsoft SQL Server Express Edition can only be used for evaluation purposes or in case of a small-scale production environment. For environments with a lot of VMs, it is necessary to install a fully functional commercial version of Microsoft SQL Server.
