Yes, I agree with this. It makes no sense, but it's true.

Veeam: Supporting macOS is absolutely necessary. It is time to update your short term and long term plans.

@busitech, @mfpoulsen, @dpal, @mdestrez, @rra, and others interested in Mac,

User profiles on your machines - are those mostly/always local, or often redirected from some network location (how?) ?

Thanks!

@PTide

In our organization, the Mac user profiles are local on the machine. There used to be a cobbled together rsync solution for backup that a user could opt into, but that went away sometime ago. Network drives are mounted using Enterprise Connect and users are encouraged to save documents there.

I just need the pkg file that is urgent. Manual admin install is better for now, rather than nothing at all. We can worry about deployment scheme later.

I am literally crippled without Veeam for MacOS. I need both files and image backups. I support Mac users since 2010. 10 years without a real backup solution. I need VCSP and local destinations

Thank you for your request. In order to better understand what customers might need should we decide to support Mac, I would like to ask what is their current workflow, and what exactly do they want to backup - files, volumes, whole machine? I would imagine those are mainly files (maybe apps), however if you would provide some input that would be great.

Thanks!

My +1 and $.02 here. Our customers are typically 10 users or fewer, although we have a few who are upwards of 50 users. We are very invested in Veeam for our own backup needs and promote it heavily to our customers. We have a customer with a juggled up mix of Windows, Mac, and Linux machines who is looking for a centralized backup solution. We normally set the backup target to be a Windows share (external HDD, usually) or a Linux-based NAS, depending on their budget. Managed deployments are rarely practical in such small environments, so I straight-up don't care about that end, but it's hard for me to promote Veeam to a customer such as this one if the Mac users are left out in the cold. File-level MacOS support is badly needed!

I‘ve heard about a beta that will be released next wednesday (Rick Vanover). Is it true? That would be great.

+1 for Mac OS support, I had to direct a customer to alternative software today. Would much have preferred to install Veeam, as we do on all other devices.

Thank you @wishr, when will it be released so far?
Meanwhile, I asked to another Italian official Veeam products distributor. Hope this time I will be lucky.

Our major release cycle is approx. annual, so v11 should arrive sometimes in Q1 next year, just like v10 did this year.
