Don’t know about you guys but I feel Veeam are missing what could be a very successful trick here with their SureBackup and Pre/Post Processing script functionalities. I know we have VeeamHub for some PowerShell scripts but I think to really push the value of Veeam integrating into our customers’ enterprise application stacks it would be great to have a more direct interface of getting scripts into Veeam.
I’ve seen plenty of systems integrating “stores” or other web fronts to enable simple access. It’d be great to see ways of integrating with systems that have been seen as “traditionally” unfriendly to snapshoting and also to validate more complex workloads.
I’m sure there are plenty of great scripts out there that just aren’t being shared due to lack of visibility of the existing platforms but driving it into the client would really improve feature take up.
That’s my opinion anyway, how do you all feel about this? Wouldn’t you like vendors to be able to offer a one click “it just works” approach to protecting their virtual appliances or validating recoverability of their software?

Great idea, fortunately such a repository already exists today: VeeamHub. This is stored on GitHub and you can find some examples already there:
There are more inside so please do take a look
For pre-freeze and post-thaw scripts they are in VeeamHub too and there are some examples already for MySQL, Novell, and SAP-Hana.
