I was thinking of veeamzipping our infrstructure as a backup solution across to muliple hard drives. Is there a utility in which you can specify all the servers you are going to veeamzip and get an estimate as to how much data space will be required?

There's no such utility. A typical rough estimation is at least 2x data size reduction in case of default compression level.

There is no such utility as compression heavily depends on the data you have in the VMs (JPEGs and Word documents will have absolutely different compression ratio), so backup size will vary from one VM to another.
