Liks,

Thank you for the question. It is a VERY interesting one.

So it sounds like you want to know why when you copy to an ESXi datastore it takes LONGER than when copying the same file to a Windows 2008 server that is virtualized on the ESXi server? Correct?

So here's my guess albeit an educated one but it is still a guess. My thinking is that the ESXi host is limited on the amount of network bandwidth it is allowed to use while the majority is reserved for the VM traffic. So this could be why you see faster speeds to the VMs and slower speeds to the ESXi host itself.

Is your network a 1GB or 10GB?

I'm not sure exactly how you would manage this at the vnic level but take a look at your vSwitch settings. Also if you have additional ports make sure they are a true active/active pair.

See this article for VMwares tips on troubleshooting network performance.
