We have no SAN at all, we are in a small bussines of utilities,we have 3 servers ESX(3 hosts) to backup with VCB . We have a iSCSI storage.

iSCSI is a form of SAN & sometimes is called just IP SAN.

It is fully SUPPORTED for running VCB, so at least in theory should work.

Do you have a separate physical host (VCB proxy) which is recommended?
