Maybe this is not so important for others but for us this currently is a show stopper. Our next backup tool renewal will be in 5 years so let's check this again then.
We try to add them as quick as possible but as stated in this thread it depends on a lot of things. Requests, alliances, mutual benefits,... If vendor X is the nr 1 requested but they say no we can't release it (legal reasons).
While others may have a lot of storage vendors as they added them quickly when they were added the integration in most cases is far from perfect with major issues which results in finger pointing and customers bouncing between vendor support when things go wrong. This is a different approach Veeam has taken, giving an improved integration and higher level of support regardless of where it may go wrong.
