Feature Request - Veeam for Mac Laptops and Workstations

Post by nmaludy » Mar 12, 2019 11:30 am

Hello,

We support several dozen businesses that are primarily Mac shops. These customers currently pay us for managed backups, but because Veeam doesn't support Mac we have to use another service.

It would be great if Veeam offered Mac support, because then we could backup these agents using the same method and repositories that we already have setup.

These Macs are primarily laptops and workstations for end-users.


Thanks,
Nick

Hi Nick,

Thanks for your feature request. There is an existing topic with similar requests, please take a look > Other OS Support (Linux, Mac)

Thanks!

We need this as well. We have about 50 MacOS systems.

@nmaludy how do you backup Macs with another service: file-level or image-level?

@nmlaudy,
Ok, so you are a service provider, right? How are you going to deploy agent for Mac (should it be released) into your clients' infrastructures? Are you aiming to use their existing MDM servers in combination with your ABM account, or there are other means of deployment that you intend to use?

@mkretzer,
Any insights on your practices regarding deployment will be highly appreciated as well : )

Thanks!

What exactly do you need?

For us no matter how it is deployed it is better than having no solution at all :-)

@mkretzer,

To be more precise - if you had to deploy a certain piece of software on all 50 Mac systems, how would you accomplish that task? Would you use AppStore, MDM solutions (such as JAMF, or mosyle), or something else?

Thanks!

SSH and Shell scripting. We use it all the time from our Client Management Software Baramundi
