Data protection is a top concern for businesses in today’s digital landscape. Veeam, a leading provider of data management solutions, continues to innovate to ensure the security and availability of critical data. Their latest enhancement is the integration of Veeam Service Provider Console with Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365. This combination provides service providers and organizations with comprehensive data management, centralized licensing and reporting capabilities for their Microsoft 365 and other data protection workloads all from a single console. In this blog post, we will explore the features and benefits of this groundbreaking integration.
Understanding Veeam Service Provider Console
Veeam Service Provider Console simplifies the management of multi-tenant environments by providing a comprehensive set of tools for centralized backup, monitoring and reporting. This console primarily serves as a centralized platform to enable service providers to deliver and manage Veeam-powered services to their customers, but it’s also available to any customer to deploy on their own.
Remote multi-tenant backup and recovery management: Service providers can remotely manage and monitor backups across several customer environments, ensuring the availability of critical data and the segregation of customer data.
Centralized licensing and billing: This platform offers flexible resource allocation and billing capabilities which allows service providers to optimize resource usage and provide accurate billing to customers.
Monitoring and dashboards: Real-time monitoring and reporting functionalities provide visibility into backup jobs, storage usage and overall system health.
Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 Integration
Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 v7 has many new product integrations into the Veeam Service Provider Console v7. With the incorporation of Veeam Service Provider Console, Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 gains product enhancements and centralized product control.
Extending Data Protection to Microsoft 365
The integration with Veeam Service Provider Console brings a host of enhanced capabilities that go beyond the backup of Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business and Microsoft Teams data that Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 can do alone. Along with the console’s native features, Veeam Service Provider Console offers many plug-ins that expand with each release.
The Veeam Service Provider Console offers many core features that can elevate the security and control when accessing managed data. The first feature is the management portal, which offers two access methods that have granular restrictive roles for administrators and clients. The administrator portal is primarily used for the configuration and monitoring of your infrastructure as a whole. The client portal is leveraged for managing assigned data management services. An additional benefit of this portal access is the ability to require MFA and leverage SSO technologies. The Veeam Service Provider Console also allows for a separation of certificates creating an additional security layer.
Streamlined Reporting and Licensing
Veeam Service Provider Console has an entire suite of alarms embedded into the console to ensure that all connections to your services and components remain in a healthy state. Each job also comes with notification settings and reports that can be triggered in case of warnings and failures. Manual exports can be performed to spot-check things like configuration and available updates. Veeam Service Provider Console also provides reports with insights on backs you can save for later like Microsoft 365-protected objects.
On top of these alarms, you also have two key plug-ins that can enhance your monitoring and reporting suite. Veeam ONE is a monitoring and reporting software that’s native to Veeam’s software suite and can be used alongside our data management platform. With the Veeam ONE plug-in inside Veeam Service Provider Console, you can enhance the management experience of your license and reporting reports across Veeam platforms. Directly from Veeam ONE, it is possible to monitor Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 infrastructure. To break ground into an even more centralized monitoring experience, Veeam Service Provider Console also has a direct plug-in with Grafana.
