Hi all. I am at the point where I need to purchase a new tape library now due to hardware failures of our current device. Now I know that v7 is not out yet, and understand the reasons for limited information availability right now. My question is, when v7 is released, will there be any compatibility list for tape drive/library devices also available at that point?
The recent community update email from Gostev stated 'we require that OEM drivers for your tape devices are installed (there is no support for devices that appear as Unknown or Generic in Windows Device Manager), so start looking for the latest drives now.'
Is that the only requirement? I'm looking at the IBM TS3100, which does have drives for the library supplied by IBM. Or to ask differently, as far as acquiring a tape device that is compatible with Veeam, am I in the same situation now as I will be after the release? Or will there be more information available then?
Thanks much in advance!
