There are a few things that would be nice to have in VMware vSphere for Windows Failover Clusters and I hope these things are included in future releases:
Support for vADP style backups

The upcoming Veeam B&R v8 though adds full support for Availability Groups, including both backup and restore.

As to other VM configurations, then please be aware that Veeam B&R automatically excludes all unsupported disk types from backups.
