Feature Request: B&R Console on Mac and/or RHEL

I'm sure I'm not the first to ask for this, but I'd love to be able to open the B&R console from my Mac or my laptop running RHEL. As of right now, I have to RDP to a Windows system, and open it there. Not a huge inconvenience, but it would be nice to be able to just open it up locally.

Yep, this request has been brought up previously. Just to set proper expectations, though - there are no immediate plans to implement it. Thanks.

Thanks for the reply. It never hurts to ask though.

I think Veeam ought to consider any options to reduce its reliance on Windows. Being tied to Windows Server is a major negative. Having to use a (UI issue plagued) Windows-only program for management is downright egregious. Look at vSphere, which is now nearly feature complete using HTML5.

Can Veeam _please_ make a concentrated effort to get current with today's technology? And no, I do not mean ReFS (ugh!).
Unless otherwise specified, I am asking about something pertaining to Linux. We use Windows as infrequently as possible, and enthusiastically seek ways to reduce that usage further.

I don't believe this would be a good use of our limited R&D resources at this time, comparing to how much value we can add to the product focusing the same developers on other features related to data protection. Including features for mostly-Linux shops like your own ;)
