We're about to embark on backing up our VM estate with Veeam, we're coming from a Netbackup environment.
To give a quick overview of our setup, we have 50.8 TB of storage spread across 55 datastores. These in turn are accessed by VMs running across 15 hosts.
Now, we where having a bit of a debate in the office yesterday about the best way to approach this.
Currently it's all being backed up by Netbackup, and it's being done from a datastore perspective. That is, Netbackup has jobs set for each datastore. Whatever is in the datastore at the time, is what's being backed up.
I proposed that with Veeam, we simply just group our VMs into roles. For example, File & print, SQL, Linux etc, let the jobs run and let Veeam sort itself out.
What's the method you experienced Veeam users go for ?
Apologies if my outline sounds a little vague. It's currently 1am here and it's been a long day.

Anyway, you can search the forum for what other customers do depending on their requirements. Probably, someone will chime in to share his experience.
