I'm not aware of any other vendor being affected by this at the moment.  Symantec Netbackup works fine, as do other competitor products...

There is an online portal, save yourself the long hold times. Create ticket online, then call in with ticket # in hand :-) "We backup data to restore, we don't backup data just to back it up."
