“In line with Microsoft’s commitment to interoperability, Veeam MP extends the power of Microsoft System Center to give enterprise IT deep visibility into vSphere environments. System Center provides a single console from which IT can manage both physical and virtual infrastructures, even in heterogeneous environments. With its focus on extending System Center, Veeam is the 2012 Microsoft Management and Virtualization Partner of the Year for good reason.”
Derek Hennessy, Senior Consultant, BEarena
“Veeam MP provides us with a complete view of our environment in a single pane of glass. The new features within Veeam MP v6 allow us to find the root cause of issues even faster than before, which reduces our time to resolution. The new Capacity Planning feature allows our operators to be more pro-active and efficient at problem resolution. The visibility of both the physical and virtual components in once place gives us a holistic overview of our environment. Without doubt the Veeam MP is the best monitoring tool for VMware virtual environments on the market and has helped us to grow our business to new heights. Once again Veeam is ahead of the curve!”
Jason Buffington, Sr. Analyst at the Enterprise Strategy Group
“Veeam has long been known as an early innovator in solving VMware-specific backup challenges, and has since brought that know-how to Hyper-V customers. Now Veeam is bringing that insight to VMware monitoring scenarios. There is a huge base of Windows servers that are managed by Microsoft System Center, but are virtualized on top of VMware hypervisors. System Center provides a breadth of monitoring and management capabilities for Windows environments, but it needs better visibility into vSphere instrumentation to truly fully realize Microsoft’s private cloud management vision. Veeam MP v6 looks to fill that gap, which should delight System Center administrators and partners.
Ratmir Timashev, President and CEO, Veeam Software
“Virtualization is now the dominant environment within the modern data center, so managing it effectively has become absolutely vital to the health of the enterprise. With the Veeam MP v6, organizations can take control of their virtual VMware environment using a management framework they already know very well: Microsoft System Center.”
