Performance of vCenter for VMs hosted on a different storage

Hi there Experts,

Assuming that I have the following:

Server Room 1:
- ESXi Server 1
- iSCSI Storage
- the in between connection is 10Gb
- the network connection is 1Gb
- vCenter and VMs are running inside that Storage

Server Room 2:
- ESXi Server 2 connected to the 1Gb Network
- This Server runs one VM located in his internal HDD

Assuming that I am adding the ESXi Server 2 and VM of Sever Room 2 to the vCenter of Server Room 1:

Using vCenter what would be the performance of VM (hosted on ESXi Server 2) compared to the VMs that are located in the same storage with vCenter?

Dear Andrew,

Unfortunatelly I don't have yet the Software and part of the Hardware to perform this welocome test.
As per my previous answered question I am currently at the "design" stage.

Given that, the Server from Server Room 2 exists and is working smoothly with
the 1Gb network connection.

So I was wondering...:

If I format this and convert it to ESXi Server and then create a VM
that is same with the current Physical Server

will it run as smoothly as before?
will I have any serious impact since the vCenter is not installed locally and
the VM/ESXi is being accessed from Vcenter via a 1Gb network speed?
