Hello, what specific component(s) are you interested in?
1. Veeam Backup console
2. Virtual machine guest OS
3. VSS integration

For console, we plan to add Windows 2008 support after VMware adds Windows 2008 support for VCB (as you probably know, Veeam Backup must be installed on VCB proxy server). 64bit OS support should become available around the same time frame.

Is there a more specific schedule available yet? We need the 64bit console, because our Backupdervers are all running 64bit. (Each of our 4 Backupservers has 16GB of RAM and 8TB of Diskspace available, so we had to use 64bit) We would like to buy your Product, but no 64bit support for the console is a real show stopper.

Hello, the VCB version that support Windows 2008 should be out around the same time frame as vSphere (May 2009). We are aiming to support Windows 2008 at about same time frame (as soon as we can get the new VCB version and test Windows 2008 support with it).

Thanks!
