Veeam Software Announces Management Suite for VMware Virtualization

Extends VMware VirtualCenter

Veeam Software announced the Veeam Management Suite for VMware, a comprehensive suite designed to address many of the common challenges faced by ESX administrators. The Veeam Management Suite for VMware works with and extends VMware VirtualCenter to help simplify the management of virtual environments.

"Virtualization technology offers an opportunity to dramatically improve the flexibility and manageability of enterprise systems," said Ratmir Timashev, Veeam Software president and CEO. "On the other hand, fast virtualization adoption by medium and large enterprises creates new systems management challenges. These new virtualized environments call for different approaches, as well as new management tools. Traditional physical systems management tools simply aren't designed to do it. Veeam has created the most comprehensive set of tools designed specifically for VMware ESX environments."

"IT organizations that seek improvements in areas such as total cost of ownership as a consequence of implementing virtual server technology should take action to ensure that the management of this new shared services architecture doesn’t begin to eat into these savings," said Cameron Haight, research vice president, Gartner, Inc. "IT operations personnel should seek out tools that not only provide the needed level of visibility, but ideally work to break down traditional management ‘silos’ to reduce integration costs and improve information sharing."

Capabilities offered by the Veeam suite include:
Reporting and Documentation – Veeam Reporter automatically discovers and collects information about the VMware Infrastructure 3 environment, its components and configuration settings, including virtual machines, network, storage and VMotion. Reporter generates comprehensive reports in Visio, Excel, Word or PDF formats to help ESX administrators with configuration and change management. In addition, Reporter’s Storage Capacity Report helps administrators and datacenter managers with storage management, capacity planning and chargeback.

Performance monitoring and troubleshooting – Veeam Monitor is an agentless solution that supports the monitoring of multiple ESX Servers and multiple VirtualCenters. Veeam Monitor provides single-screen detailed reporting and alerting of key usage and performance statistics by cluster, resource pool or virtual machine.

Configuration management – Veeam Configurator allows administrators to manage advanced settings and subsystems of multiple VMware ESX Servers easily without accessing the command line, writing scripts or manually editing configuration files. Veeam Configurator provides a Windows GUI that integrates with and extends the capabilities of VMware VirtualCenter.
