Last year we announced Veeam Managed Backup Portal, exclusive to the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. This Azure-based solution was well received among Veeam’s managed service provider (MSP) and value-added reseller (VAR) communities. This enabled the delivery of remote monitoring and management to their customers' Veeam Backup & Replication environments. Veeam Managed Backup Portal came with zero connectivity requirements between the MSP and their customer, and minus having an Azure subscription, there were minimal upfront costs, making these new recurring revenue streams even more profitable.
This is the beginning of a series of blogs that will give you an in-depth how-to of the many new capabilities that are available in Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows 2.0.
If this is the first time you are hearing about our new product, I recommend you first review the following announcement blog post where I have previously provided an overview of the three editions of Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows and some of the new functionalities. In this blog post, we will take a deeper look at some of the top features this release brings.
What a great week so far it has been at VeeamON 2017 in New Orleans! Holding true on one of our core values – Veeam Speed — I am very excited to share with you another VeeamON 2017 product announcement.
Veeam Management Pack (MP) for System Center v8 Update 4 is NOW generally available (GA)!
VeeamON 2017 is right around the corner, 8 days to be exact. The event begins on May 16 in New Orleans, LA! Personally, I have been very busy preparing my three breakout sessions and all of the demos, as well as all of the social media activities I’m involved in. If you’re a returning VeeamON veteran, welcome back, but if you’re a newbie to VeeamON, don’t be shy – my ask of you is quite simple — come prepared to achieve three key tasks:
Let’s touch on how these tasks can be achieved in a fun way!
It has been an extremely busy time for Veeam with the release of Veeam Availability Suite 9.5, the release of Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 as well as the upcoming public beta of Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows. This release trend is continuing and today I am pleased to announce the general availability (GA) of Veeam Management Pack (MP) for System Center Update 3 and its Availability for download!
Many multi-tier applications that once had to be hosted on premises are now being deployed within the public cloud. With this adoption, millions of organizations worldwide no longer desire to manage their on-premises Exchange email infrastructure for a multitude of different reasons. The Exchange Online component of Office 365 provides a Software as a Service (SaaS) offering for businesses to purchase on a subscription basis. To complicate things just slightly, protecting and ensuring the recoverability of this data has been a challenge.
It’s a problem that’s continuing to plague organizations around the globe. For example, a large global organization was faced with recent outages of their end-user-facing, retail-sales application costing the company thousands of dollars. A mandate from the CIO placed the IT team in a position where they HAD to figure out how to centrally protect the applications and services at their remote office/branch offices (ROBOs), as well as their headquarters (HQ) datacenter.
It’s unfortunate, but this challenge is becoming more and more commonplace in the today’s virtualized datacenter. Senior executives are now demanding centralized, off-site backup AND replication of their many remote offices and datacenters to the HQ datacenter, or in some cases, to the public cloud.
Because Veeam fully intends to maintain this practice of being among the first to add support for newly released versions, I am happy to announce that NEW Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 will be the first to provide FULL, advanced support for Microsoft 2016 data center technologies. Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 will integrate deeply with new Windows Server 2016 technologies, Microsoft Hyper-V 2016 and the 2016 releases of Microsoft enterprise applications.
- • How do I monitor this constantly evolving and changing environment?
- • What metrics are the most important?
- • Do we keep using the legacy tools we're used using?
- • Do I procure something that's purposely built for the virtual infrastructure (VI)?
- • Like most IT decisions, there are pros and cons to each approach, but what if we took a bit of a hybrid approach?
- • What if the VI could be monitored and reported on within an existing toolset?
