Veeam fully supports it, I don't have as much time with this product since
it pretty new, but its based on their server stuff which I have been using
for years and it's been solid.  I have some really nasty window servers
doing everything under the sun and they get backed up and replicated
continuously, I don't have as much time on this new offering but I am using
it and so far so good.
