SAN transport mode may be used where the proxy for the VMware node is a physical machine connected to the same Fibre Channel or iSCSI SAN as the storage devices used to hold the VM datastores. If this is done, then the data can be transferred directly from the vCenter or ESX/ESXi host to the destination. If the proxy node shares access over a SAN to disks used by the VMware datastores, VMware SAN Transport Mode will be used to transfer data directly from the datastores to the destination. This method is efficient at passing virtual disk data between a VM and the proxy as no data will traverse the LAN.
