News Facts:

  • Veeam Software, innovative provider of backup, replication and virtualization management solutions for Windows Server Hyper-V and VMware vSphere, introduces the Veeam Management Pack 1 (MP) 10-Pack, a free System Center 2012 monitoring solution for VMware. This offer is for new Veeam MP customers worldwide who use System Center 2012. Veeam also announces broad support for System Center 2012 to help customers manage and protect private clouds that include Windows Server Hyper-V, VMware or both.

  • The Veeam Management Pack 10-Pack is a fully functioning version of the MP that enables companies to:

    • Protect investments in System Center with integrated VMware monitoring.

    • Manage physical and virtual infrastructure from one console.

    • Eliminate the cost of additional monitoring frameworks.

    • Veeam Backup & Replication v6.1, with expected availability in Q2 2012, will extend support for System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 to System Center 2012 Virtual Machine Manager.
