Scales to Meet Monitoring and Management Demands of the Largest Enterprises and Virtualized Workloads

VMworld Europe 2011, COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Oct. 18, 2011 - Veeam Software, innovative provider of VMware data protection, disaster recovery and VMware management solutions for virtual datacenter environments, today announced a new version of the Veeam nworks Smart Plug-in (SPI) for VMware that scales to meet the demands of the largest vSphere environments, with current customers monitoring and managing virtual environments in HP Operations Manager with as many as 25,000 virtual machines (VMs) and 1,500 ESX(i) hosts. Veeam will demonstrate the nworks SPI v5.7 in booth #42 at VMworld Europe 2011 through Oct. 20.

The nworks SPI provides scalable, fault-tolerant and agentless VMware infrastructure monitoring and management directly in HP Operations Manager. This gives organizations a comprehensive view of their IT infrastructures and enables them to manage their physical and virtual environments from one console. The nworks SPI also provides enterprise reporting for VMware in HP OpenView Performance Insight (OVPI). Version 5.7 of the nworks SPI includes:

  • Support for VMware vSphere 5.0: The nworks SPI now monitors more than 160 metrics and 500 events to help administrators manage even the most complex vSphere environments. This includes new metrics and events introduced in vSphere 5.0 and an additional derived metric unique to Veeam. DiskPressure analyzes storage configuration and warns of over allocation, enabling administrators to avoid production slowdowns and outages. Version 5.7 also offers hardware monitoring directly from ESX(i) hosts for improved visibility and reduced overhead on vCenter Servers.

  • Updated HP platform support: The nworks SPI now supports HP Operations Manager 9.0 for Windows and HP Performance Agent 11. It also includes full support for the latest version of Veeam Business View, including dynamic grouping of clusters, hosts and datastores, as well as VMs.

  • Enhanced support for the largest VMware vSphere environments: vSphere clusters of any size can now be monitored at the most granular level, and enhanced targeting of vCenter events and messages improves workflows in the network operations center.

“In order to realize the benefits of virtualization, organizations must have complete control of the health and performance of both their physical and virtual environments,” said Ratmir Timashev, President and CEO of Veeam. “These new enhancements to the nworks SPI extend an organization’s monitoring and management capabilities for proactive problem resolution, whether the virtual environment contains a few hundred or thousands of VMs.”

Availability A beta version of the nworks SPI v5.7 is available now; general availability is expected within 60 days. More information is available at http://go.veeam.com/veeam-nworks-v5.7.html.
