Yesterday we made available for download our updated Capacity Planning for VMware as part of the Veeam ONE Solution. This update builds on the capacity planning that was already part of Veeam ONE and extends it address customer feedback and add new features.

Take the guesswork out of capacity planning

  • Look beyond consolidation ratios and constraint-based optimization
  • Analyze trends, perform what-if modeling, forecast and make recommendations to provide guidance for when, how and where to intelligently grow the virtual environment.
  • Perform what-if analysis for adding custom VMs and hosts
  • Analyze thin-provisioning and identify over-committed storage
  • Provide recommendations for host and storage resources

Veeam ONE is more that just capacity planning, in fact, it also includes all of these monitoring and reporting features as well:

  • Real-time monitoring
  • Hundreds of vSphere metrics
  • vSphere Events
  • Reporting Dashboards
  • Customizable reports
  • Change management
  • Automatic business categorization
  • End-to-end view: through Microsoft System Center and HP Operations Manager

This update is available for free for any Veeam ONE (or Veeam Reporter) customers current on maintenance. If you’d like to download a trial of just the advanced capacity planning, you can download Veeam Reporter.

    I understand Veeam is a backup company. with that I understand the veeam backup dev cycles receive most of the attention and most of the R&D money. However I purchased 215 or so cpus of veeam one monitor to go with my 215 or so cpus of veeam backup, and by looks at this blog’s activity, there is not much going on with veeam monitor. I am being influenced by other monitoring companies, ie vmware operations manager and the vmturbo. Will veeam monitor move more towards a vmturbo style of monitoring? I have many licenses coming up for renewal and I find this product fairly stagnant, and the graphics/charting etc not too appealing. But veeam one works just as it is supposed too, but with less staff i could use more automation and tools that fix themselves.
