Anyone have a need for this:
Currently customers have 2 options when connecting a Tape Server to a Tape Library
1: Physical Tape Server: attached to the Library/FC
2: Multiple Virtual Tape Servers: partitioning the tape library so each Tape Server (VM) will see only select drives, and slots.
Either way would maximize the throughput of data transference. Currently having 1 VM as Tape Server does not maximize the libraries efficiency throughput.

You can add multiple tape servers to the same installation of Veeam Backup & Replication. But mind that you cannot add one tape library to two different tape servers and write data to it from both tape servers.
Would this work: Ability to have multiple tape servers within single VBR see and manage same multi-drive tape library
To optimize the use of libraries and drives, it should be supported between multiple Tape Servers within a single VBR. Although the library’s media changer is controlled by 1 Tape Server, all of the additional Tape Servers would have access to the media changer through centralized management. Thereby all Tape Servers can see all drives, and slots, and the Primary Tape Server coordinates drive and slot access, all to maximize throughput of data streams
