According to data from 451 Research, 46% of organizations currently use on-premises infrastructure as the primary environment for their workloads and applications even as IT shifts to the cloud1. At Veeam, we believe this creates a profitable opportunity for Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) partners looking to offer managed backup and DR services for their customers on-premises workloads, as well as those workloads running in the cloud.
That’s where the NEW Veeam Service Provider Console, formerly Veeam Availability Console, comes into play. The centralized, web-based user interface offers VCSP partners a single dashboard to view the current state of all of their customers backups, whether on-premises or hosted with a cloud service provider. Along with the capabilities necessary to perform actions on jobs, gather usage reports, and integrate management and monitoring into third party platforms such as ConnectWise.
Let’s take a closer look at the top 5 features and benefits of the NEW Veeam Service Provider Console v4 to help you simplify your managed back up offerings:
1. Comprehensive remote monitoring and management platform
Building on the core functionality of Veeam Availability Console, the NEW Veeam Service Provider Console is the central web-based UI that delivers everything cloud, managed service providers need to offer a successful managed backup service. Best of all, Veeam provides this product for FREE to our VCSP partners that are offering the latest backup technologies for virtual, physical and cloud-based workloads.
2. Powerful usage reporting engine
A popular request from our VCSP partners that were using legacy versions of Veeam Availability Console was the need for timesaving, in depth usage reporting for all workloads no matter where they reside. Veeam Service Provider Console v4 solves for this request by providing a single usage report per customer that is aggregated by rental points for all workloads, along with the option to manually or automatically approve usage reports, saving you time and the frustration of crunching numbers each month.
3. Multi-tenancy and customer billing
Multi-tenancy allows you to keep your individual customer environments secure and separated, while providing them their own view of backup job status and resource consumption. Out-of-the-box native billing technologies give you everything you need to do the accounting and billing of your customers Veeam-powered managed backups. For partners that are little more established with their own billing systems, Veeam Service Provider Console includes a RESTful API that makes it easy to integrate customer data from Veeam Service Provider Console into your existing workflows.
4. Native integrations with ConnectWise Manage and Automate
Leverage seamless, third-party integrations with ConnectWise business management and remote monitoring platforms. The integration with ConnectWise Manage offers helpdesk and business automation of your Veeam client base, while the most recent integration with ConnectWise Automate allows you to consolidate data protection and monitoring of your Veeam-powered services into a single user interface, reducing resources and enabling faster response times.
5. Self-service portals for customers and resale partners
To better support the partnerships between resellers, managed service providers (MSPs) and Cloud Connect providers, Veeam Service Provider Console can be offered up as a white-labeled portal. This feature enables you to provide your resellers and end users with pre-defined access rights, strengthening your partner relationships and expanding your value added services even further.
