Switching from hyper-v to esxi won’t change a thing as far as what you’ve described. CIFS operate at two different layers of abstraction.
CIFS as exporting a file system that other machines can access. The directory structure, security metadata, and such is already there. Client machines can read and write files to this file system, but that is the extent of their access. With iSCSI, the client machines see what amounts to the same thing as a physical volume from the operating system point of view. After that, you would see a new physical disk in the Windows disk management control panel. You would then initialize it, partition it, then format it with whatever file system you wished. The process would be a little different from ESXi but the concept is the same – the iSCSI target would appear like another disk on which you could build a VMFS file system.
SCSI in general will perform better because there will not be as many layers of abstraction in the way – the SMB protocol in this case. Also, since it is a block-level protocol, some software that will not work when installed to a network share will work with iSCSI. I was thinking that ESXi may not allow access to SMB shares, NFS only, so you may want to look into that as well. If that is true, you will need some way to export NFS shares but the above discussion remains the same. FreeNAS have NFS support and Windows can be setup with it too.
