Yeah...all the info is from the “VMware Broadcom Debacle” forum post, which I’ve been following for quite some time. It’s a great post to follow.

That is definitely interesting and giving users that are abandoning VMware another option now.  Nice to see Veeam adding another hypervisor to the list.

Veeam are looking for testers for Proxmox from what I read in the dedicated forum.

And last reply about Proxmox was

Today Anton posts:

So Veeam has received our own VMware renewal quotes which are... impressive, so I guess we're officially in the same boat with ya'll now :D
And judging by the fact that our IT folks have suddenly come to us with many questions about Proxmox, it is also being evaluated

So I sit on the couch, opening my popcorn and waiting next hypervisor support
