Veeam Data Transfer for VMWare

Veeam Logoby kenny782 » Fri Feb 17, 2017 2:41 pm

I'm pretty sure I know the answer but I've never really confirmed it and it's always bugged me.

So I have a VCenter 6.0 Server managing 3 ESXi 6.0 hosts.
VEEAM is plugged into my VCenter server which obviously in turn connects it to my 3 Hosts and VM's.

When it comes to my actual backup jobs, is VEEAM transferring my actual backup data directly from those hosts or is it funneling all the data through VCenter?
I've always assumed it pulled the data directly from the hosts but I've never actually confirmed that...

I'm not using any SAN Transport methods.

Hi Kenneth, there're several data transport modes available, but vCenter itself is used for management activity only. Please review the following FAQ topic and corresponding user guide section for details and feel free to ask additional questions if required.
