Just some feedback on our investigation into Veeam Agent for Windows as a candidate for our physical to cloud backup solutions;
We're a reseller and Cloud Connect provider, Veeam has been our preferred platform for virtual backups for some time now, however, while investigating the use cases for Veeam for Windows we discovered a licensing blocker which will probably stop us from being able to use it in physical environments.
The Agent allows for only a single backup job. While this can be done to a Veeam repository (free) you cannot then use the repository server to copy the job to cloud connect or another offsite repository without a B&R license. This means that to retain an on site copy, as well as a cloud connect offsite copy, you are essentially paying for 3 different product SKUs to make the solution work. This places it far out of reach for SME/SMB customers who have been used to similar products having a relatively low cost.
Ideally we'd like to be able to have an agent, then a cloud connect copy for just the cost of those two licenses, while retaining an on site copy. I don't know how feasible this is to your marketing and business strategy but it does seem strange that the agent can be targeted at Cloud Connect directly, and it can copy to the free version of B&R for a local repository, but you cannot do both without a somewhat unnecessary additional cost.
