I’m curious how long you all wait to update to the latest version, firmware, or software release in your production systems.
For me, I would say I am on the early end of the spectrum, but I usually try and roll things out to TEST first if I can and verify for a few days. This doesn’t always work as there are times it won’t fully mirror PROD.
VMware is one I’ll try and wait a little bit due to some pretty significant issues in the past I have had with host failures. Being extremely critical infrastructure downtime isn’t allowed AT ALL for us.
Another thing I use to decide is the support I get. With Veeam, I have had so many good experiences I am confident they will resolve my issue. I also tend to keep my config backups and having to reinstall once or twice it’s quite doable in a pinch.
