Q/A – Is VMware v7 compatible with Veeam B&R v10

Veeam Community Answer: Veeam Community Forums Digest by Gostev, Senior Vice President, Product Management at Veeam Software
“VMware has made the vSphere 7 generally available last week – and sure enough, a mere split second later I already saw people reporting that they upgraded, and Veeam Backup & Replication 10 appears to work fine with it. While in general this was expected, as v10 includes support for the latest vSphere 7.0 RC build that was available to us at the time – as usual, we'll need to perform the full regression testing on the generally available vSphere 7 build before we can declare the official support. And while v10 may appear to "just work" with it, I can tell you that this required bigger-than-usual changes under the hood on our side, due to vSphere 7 deprecating many legacy APIs. So at least in theory, the possibility of regressions is more significant than with the previous vSphere releases. Because of that, it would be smart not to jump the gun!”
