Funny you asked, because someone just posted this in the corresponding LinkedIn discussion, what that you by any chance?Looking for Backup solution for our VMware environment that works.

I agree with Rick here....we have switched to Veeam and it has been solid, they have made great strides and is the best vm backup solution right now in my opinion. Check that out.
Now I realize that this discussion is huge (last for over 1 year already), but if you just browse through at least a few most recent pages, you will see most people recommending Veeam. And the beauty is, these are real people and real users, not some our marketing bots
But generally speaking, every software has bugs. And we do have bugs too, believe me. Just not (by far) as many as our competition does.
Also, because every software has bugs, you need be looking at how agile and fast the development team is. How fast can it provide hotfixes when you are facing real issue? This is typically can be seen by just looking at release history. If your vendor requires 2-3 years for can really be called a "major" release (significant step forward), then hotfixes will not be very different.
Most technical people at Veeam agree in internal discussions that Veeam releases best quality products comparting to all other software companies they have been to before. With over 15 years working for software vendors, I do agree wholeheartedly with that. Veeam has simply best R&D and (most importantly) QC teams in the world, period.
Now, excuse me but I need to get back to working on the next bugfix release, 5.0.2
