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 Management Pack™ (MP) for VMware, which company representatives are demonstrating in booth #42 at VMworld Europe 2011 through Oct. 20.
The nworks MP provides scalable, fault-tolerant and agentless VMware infrastructure monitoring and management directly in Microsoft System Center, with integration available for both Microsoft System Center Operations Manager and Virtual Machine Manager (VMM). This gives organizations a comprehensive view of their IT infrastructures and enables them to manage applications, physical systems and both Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere virtual environments from System Center. Version 5.7 of the nworks MP includes:
Support for VMware vSphere 5.0: The nworks MP 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 a new 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 data gathered directly from ESX(i) hosts for improved visibility and reduced overhead on vCenter Servers.
New reporting: The nworks MP leverages the Microsoft System Center Operations Manager’s data warehouse to provide more than 25 new and rewritten out-of-the-box reports, including a new report on oversized virtual machines (VMs) that helps administrators manage CPU and memory allocations. The nworks MP also offers more than 20 new views and dashboards for host storage, host networking, datastore provisioning, hardware and more.
Enhanced support for the largest VMware environments: vSphere clusters of any size can now be monitored at the most granular level; enhanced targeting of vCenter events and messages improves workflows in the network operations center; and low-impact discovery and streamlined topology reduce the impact on System Center infrastructure.
“The nworks MP leverages and protects the investments our customers have made in Microsoft System Center,” said Ratmir Timashev, President and CEO of Veeam. “These new enhancements extend monitoring and management capabilities for mission-critical virtual environments, which is particularly important as they grow and expand.”
“Veeam combines deep VMware expertise and tight integration with System Center,” said Garth Fort, General Manager, Management and Security Division, Microsoft. “The company continues to make excellent use of the advanced capabilities in System Center to provide customers with VMware monitoring, analysis and notification.”
Veeam works in close collaboration with Microsoft and recently became a managed partner, a status attained by only one percent of Microsoft partners. In addition, Veeam is a Microsoft Partner of the Year Finalist (2010), a member of the System Center Alliance and a member of the Microsoft Technology Center (MTC) Alliance.
Availability A beta version of the nworks MP 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.
