@iknowtech,

I am not a Mac admin, hence I'd like to clarify something - what's wrong with using ABM in conjunction with MDM for centralized deployment? Besides, as far as I understand JAMF is an MDM solution, so I think there is a slight contradiction in your post or I am just reading it wrong?

Thank you

That was my point. I think a Veeam agent will need to be mass deployed through ABM and/or MDM tool. Either that or through the general Apple App Store at smaller scale. Simply stating it’s not as easy as just deploying a MSI through group policy, and will require a whole different level of effort. I think the days of just downloading and installing an app off the Internet are numbered in the Apple world.

+1 for Mac Support, this is essential for some of our clients that we are moving from other backup providers. I guess we won't fully switch to veeam then...

Hi @netfire,

How many Macs do you have in your environment and how do you deploy and manage software on them?

Thanks!

I would love to see mac support. Our organization currently has ~500 macs. We deploy software using munki to them.

@abel408,

I wonder, how would you distribute one same file across all of your Macs? Can Munki do that too? Or you would place that file on a shared network folder and let your users pick it from there?

Thanks!

@PTide

how it gets there initially doesn't really matter. If we had to put them in a big pile and do an interpretative voodoo dance in front of the whole office I'd still do it.

Could you share ideally how you'd distribute software to your Macs?

+1 for the Veeam backup agent on macOS. Snapshots are a new feature of Apple's APFS filesystem.

@Macbrun,

How do you manage your Mac fleet? JAMF, Munki, something else?

Thanks!

+1 for macOS support. We manage over 600 Macs and would love to have the ability to back these up. We use Jamf as our MDM

Thanks for adding additional information about the environment and the centralized management approach, this really helps us.

I'd probably use Retrospect or Cloudberry with Backblaze B2 as the cloud storage backend.... until Veeam makes a Mac OS client.

Hi,

Our IT stock is composed of :
- 50% of macs
- 25% of windows laptop
- 25% of windows

Our need is:
- A centralised way to manage backups of all OS (backup configuration and monitoring).
- The user must not be able to change backup policy.
- Plug all agents to a Veeam cloud connect platform.

Actually we can't use veeam as desktop backup solution as mac OS x is not supported.

Thanks

+1 for MacOS. Just lost another 100+ device deal because I can't do their 25 Mac's in unified portal along with their Windows ones... It was the only adverse reason they found - it's nowhere near the first time it happens either, and it is a pretty brutal showstopper cause there is nothing that you can do about it...

Veeam: It is not just about how much interest there is for Mac support at all (=sales)... It is about how many predominantly Windows customer sales that we miss out on due to the lack of Mac agents!
