VEEAM™ SOFTWARE ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF VEEAM FastSCP for VMware ESX Server

Veeam FastSCP (Fast and Secure Copy), a free tool that facilitates deployment and backup of virtual machines.

COLUMBUS, Ohio, October 10, 2006 – Veeam™ Software, a provider of best-of-breed systems management solutions for virtual machines (VMs), today announced the release of Veeam FastSCP for VMware ESX Server, a fast, secure and easy-to-use tool to transfer files between ESX Server and Windows machine.

Veeam FastSCP for VMware ESX Server is a fast and secure way to deliver ISO files to ESX Server or to make a backup copy of an existing virtual machine (VM). It ensures security by using a one-time username and password and works more than 6 times faster than SCP.

Delivering a file to ESX Server is a challenge even for experienced administrators. There is no easy way to copy an ISO file to ESX Server or make a backup copy of an existing VM. The fastest transfer method would be ftp, but in ESX 3 ftp is firewalled by default. What is more important, installing ftp server on ESX or administrator’ machine to deliver a file would present a major security risk because ftp transfers a password in clear text.

Veeam FastSCP effectively solves the problem of data transfer. It works more than 6 times faster than SCP without affecting ESX security. Veeam FastSCP includes three features that make it an essential tool for VMware administrators:

  • It’s fast: Veeam FastSCP can copy files more than 6 times faster than SCP. It saves a lot of time when dealing with large files.
  • It’s secure: Veeam FastSCP doesn’t require installing anything on ESX Server. It establishes a connection generating a one-time username and password for each file. For example, if you have to upload 10 ISO files, the program will change credentials 10 times.
  • It’s easy to use: Veeam FastSCP doesn’t require any reconfiguration of ESX Server. It has Windows Explorer-like user interface familiar to any Windows user. An administrator can install FastSCP on his/her workstation and start copying files right away.

Veeam FastSCP is free and intended for VMware administrators. It is available as free download at: http://www.veeam.com/vmware-esxi-fastscp.html
