In addition to the items I asked about previously, what about also changing the way backups to tape are done, change it to have the ability to run a file level backup vs. the image file backup.
For example, when you have to restore something and the image file is 6TB, well that poses lots of issues (long restore times of the 6TB image file, a location to put it just to extract out a few files, 2 restores are needed - 1st is to restore the image file then restore the file(s) needed).
We don't always have a need to restore the entire VM (or image file) using Veeam and it would be a lot easier and a lot less time consuming than the way the product is currently.
In the article written 'Switch to Veeam from Veritas Backup Exec', it's stated in the article: "AgLegacy tools like Backup Exec can suffer from slow recovery times and typically require agents." While this is true Backup Exec does require an agent, but you can restore large amounts of data without the requiring having to do 2 restores (as stated above) which cuts down on the time needed to restore your data and you don't need to find large sized disks since they don't do image file backups.
