we are going to implement veeam backup software to backup our virtual machines. We are trying to design the solution.
 As I am reading I have three options:
1. physical server which will have access to all datastores through SAN
2. Virtual appliance. This method is available on Veeam B&R servers installed on a virtual machine. Virtual disks of backup sources are attached to the Veeam server using SCSI hot add.
3. network mode - it seems that this is not recoomended

Could you recommend me what options to choose. The first one seems good but i am worried about Windows server mounting and signaturing VMFS volumes. I have IBM Nseries 6040 storage and I cannot find a way to give only  read access to veeam host.
