[Proxmox] Giving VM high speed access to storage array on host

I am setting up a Proxmox host and will be setting up a ZFS array on the host. I will be setting it up as a NAS, but I don’t know how I can give a VM high speed access to the storage. On a LXC container, I could directly pass through a directory to the guest. If I set up the network share on the host, I would be limited to the 1gbe link between my proxmox host and (windows) vm.

What is the best way to accomplish this?

Use a host bridge and Vitrio, I believe they’re 100gbit, essentially unlimited.
