I can confirm that Veeam is working fine with my new Dell PowerVault LTO7 drive, if you would like to add this to the unofficial compatibility list?

Just been testing speeds, managed Processing rate of 265 MB/s and Throughput (All time) of 395.3 MB/s. This is with the tape drive physically attached to the backup server.
Backed up a 971.9 GB VM to tape (From the Disk backup) in 1hr and 3 mins. I'm very impressed with the tape drive and Veeam. This was using LTO7, with LTO6 it took 1hr 40 mins.

The results look great. Great to know everything works well. What VBR version are you at by the way?
