Ok, good to know but I'm curious to hear what the limitations are... From a customer's point of view, the roles of a proxy are:
- reading data from disks
- sending data over network to repository
- connecting with os's for script execution, vss, etc.
I think the first two arguments could also be managed by linux, probably the last one would be more tricky or even impossible. Are my assumptions right or is it more about incompatibilities with file systems and such things?
I know that we are here talking about technical details which could be top secret for veeam and I understand that veeam tries to hide those information, but probably there is a way to give us here a better understanding why only windows can do the job without giving too much information. Sometimes you have discussions about licensing and costs and then you should be able to argue why only windows can do the job...
