Why is the Veeam Matrix showing partial support for Tape but full support on Ent and Ent Plus?
What's missing on tape support in Standard?

"Files to tape" jobs are available in every product edition, while "backup to tape" jobs is provided only in Enterprise editions. The difference between the job types is availability of tracking mechanism of backups and restore points. With "backup to tape" jobs you will know on which tape medias particular VMs reside on, what medias are required in order to restore certain VM, etc. While "File to tape" is basically as good as using 3rd party software to copy Veeam backups to tape, except that you no longer need 3rd party software, and have everything integrated into the single UI.

Thanks.
