I'm new with Veeam and it have something I don't understand. I have a host with 2 datastore (2 different Raid controler) when I do a vmware clone it took 2 min so around 180mb/s. But when I do a Veeam copy or replication of the same host with same datastore it took 20 min +- 20mb/s.
Why? What can I do to optimise that? Is because the data travel between LAN?

You can grant a proxy role to VM on the target host to leverage hot-add transport mode. The Data Mover Service on the target proxy uncompresses VM data and stores it to a datastore in a native VMware format.

If your proxy is on ESX1 and the local storage which is the target of the backup is on ESX2 then it'll be using the management interface for that portion (I think) and that will be your problem, but the Veeam proxy on ESX2 and it'll probably start working as you expect
