Veeam nworks MP Enables IT Operations Staff to Perform VMware vSphere Monitoring and Management through Microsoft System Center Operations Manager

Columbus, Ohio, February 8, 2010– Veeam Software, award-winning provider of systems management tools for VMware virtual datacenter environments, today announced that the Veeam nworks Management Pack (MP) for VMware has achieved VMware Ready status. This designation indicates that the Veeam nworks MP has passed a detailed evaluation and testing process managed by VMware and is now listed on the VMware Partner Product Catalog.

Passing the extensive VMware-specified testing helps ensure that the Veeam nworks MP makes best use of VMware technology and is ready for deployment in customer environments.

The Veeam nworks MP for Microsoft and Veeam nworks Smart Plug-in (SPI) for HP were among the first management products to receive VMware Ready status in September 2008 when VMware first introduced the verification. Now, nworks connectors are again among the first products to receive the qualification for the updated program VMware Ready for vSphere.

“We are pleased that the Veeam nworks MP qualifies for the VMware Ready logo, signifying to customers that it has passed specific VMware testing and interoperability criteria and is ready to run their mission-critical business applications and operations,” said Bernie Mills, senior director, alliance programs, VMware.

“By using the Veeam nworks MP for VMware, enterprises can protect their investment in Microsoft System Center Operations Manager,” explained Ratmir Timashev, Veeam President and CEO. “The nworks MP provides distributed monitoring and management of the VMware infrastructure (vSphere and VI3), fully integrated into Microsoft System Center Operations Manager. By publishing VMware configuration, performance, state, capacity, topology, and VMware vCenter events directly into Microsoft System Center Operations Manager, our MP provides a common view across the physical and virtual infrastructures. We are honored that our MP joins the Veeam nworks Smart Plug-In (SPI) as among the first management solutions to be qualified by VMware for vSphere.”

In addition to achieving VMware Ready status, the Veeam nworks MP listing in the Microsoft System Center Catalog has been updated with the new version 5.0 and can be seen on the new Microsoft Pinpoint site.

The VMware Ready program is a VMware co-branding program for qualified partner products and is a benefit of the VMware Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program. The Veeam nworks MP can be found within the online VMware Partner Product Catalog at http://www.vmware.com/a/partnercatalog/catalog/PublicCatalog.php.
