I've been looking forward to using the new Scale-Out Repositories feature, so I just installed v9 yesterday and noticed my Enterprise edition only allows for a maximum of 3 extents. I'm curious how Veeam came up with that maximum number of extents? It just seems that the feature is restricted on Enterprise, to the point where calling it an "Enterprise" feature is a misnomer. Going from 3 extents with Enterprise to unlimited with Enterprise Plus is a very drastic difference and will end up forcing customers to (or pricing out of) Enterprise Plus in order to utilize this new feature.
In my environment, I have a physical Veeam server with 2 local volumes, so basically to make use of any additional storage space (for me iSCSI) I can only add one additional volume to my scale-out repository. Everyone's environment and needs are different, so maybe I am unreasonably expecting a little more flexibility with this feature with the Enterprise edition, but it is still somewhat disappointing. I won't make use of most additional features provided in Enterprise Plus edition and I am unable to justify the cost for the remaining ones that I could.
Maybe some insight from others can help me figure out whether my concerns are legitimate
