Veeam Monitor – Free Edition – Thank You!

Today Veeam released a free version of it's VMware monitoring tool, Veeam Monitor 3.0 Free Edition. There are plenty of other places where you can go and read all about it, including the product site. I'd rather take this space to thank all of those who have helped make this product launch a success. Thanks to the power of Twitter and the great bloggers out there, word of this release spread quickly and our marketing department did an excellent job of putting out just enough information to keep everyone interested. The following list may not be complete, if I have forgotten someone please let me know in the comments and I'lll update the post...
