Here are some points which should "fix" this way of thinking hopefully:
- 1. B&R is truly multi-hypervisor solution. Not just two separate products in a marketing bundle, but a single product architected to support multiple hypervisors in development cost effective fashion. In fact, the core data processing engine does not have any dependencies on hypervisor at all, so most things we do are done in a single place. The only non shared parts are actual hypervisor interaction pieces (data retrieving and saving) and some special sauce, so the overhead of supporting additional hypervisor is nowhere near 2x.
2. Despite of major differences in the hypervisors we support, our ultimate goal is to have feature parity between hypervisor. While today we do offer a few unique features for VMware, Hyper-V users will see the proof of our direction to this goal in the very next release - version 6.1.
3. We have been growing our R&D group aggressively, and it is a few times larger today than in the past, when we only supported VMware. Even if B&R for VMware and Hyper were completely different products, we would still have more people on each one than we used to have on VMware-only product before - at the time when many of you have decided in favor of Veeam, and became our customers.
Thank you for putting your trust in us.
