Will be buying the above to replicate and backup our VM's (load balanced between 2x hosts), no HA or automatic fail over...

Need to know where i should place the vmprotect server, physical?
If physical will this place further load on the network when backing up and replicating?
If VM, and the host fails what sort of issues will i have trying to restore the server?

A physical or virtual server  is adequate.

Backups across the network, can "load" your network, but I should not think it will cause issues.

If a virtual machine, and you need to restore this virtual machine, you will need to restore your Backup Server first!

Both perform backups at the same rate, both use incrementals, CBT, hot-add.

I would not say one is faster than the other, both are limited by the same constraints, server, network, destination write performance.
