Hi Veeam Developers,
Please package the veeam agent for linux in the universal snap package format to make it easier to install and update.
This will also allow for more distributions to download veeam agent for linux.

thank you !

We'll look into it. May I ask for which distros you are already using snap?

Ubuntu/Ubuntu Core and a few other distros that support snap packages for example solus.
snap packages will allow for easier deployment and updates.

Thank you !

Thanks for the link. Could you let us know which ones you are actually using (or is it still limited to Ubuntu & Ubuntu Core in your environment)?

Hi,

Although your feature request has been noted, it is unlikely that VAL will support snap packages for distros other than major (Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS etc.) soon.

Thank you!
