How to add Infinidat Storage plugin to Veeam

Veeam Backup and Replication added the ability to utilise plug-ins from different Storage Array manufacturers in version 9.5 update 3. This should allow Storage partners to be added much faster than in previous versions through the use an API release to the Storage manufacturers.  The first cab off the ranks is Infinidat.

How then do you use one of the plug-ins?  Looking into the console there is no reference to it.  The secret is to check on your Available Product Downloads through the support portal available at https://my.veeam.com

Here you will find the Product Downloads that you’re entitled to, and can download the plug-in directly.

After the download is complete you can run the Application to start the install process.
