CLEVELAND, OHIO, April 21, 2008 — Veeam Software, award-winning provider of systems management tools for VMware ESX Server environments, today began the public beta of its newest product: Veeam Reporter Enterprise Edition. Veeam Reporter Enterprise is the first reporting solution specifically designed for large VMware Infrastructure 3 (VI3) virtual environments. It provides unattended or ad hoc reporting, as well as centralized Microsoft SQL data storage to help systems administrators discover, document and report on all the objects within their VMware virtual infrastructure.
Like the original Veeam Reporter, Reporter Enterprise collects information about the VI3 environment, its components and configuration settings. From this collection, Reporter provides comprehensive visual reports for analysis, documentation and decision-making support. Designed for professional use by ESX administrators, system integrators and datacenter managers, it is designed from the ground up to integrate with VMware VirtualCenter and ESX Server.
"Our larger customers like the functionality of Veeam Reporter, but they need more scalable capabilities, such as a Microsoft SQL back-end, automated data collection, and a web interface, so that’s what Reporter Enterprise delivers," said Ratmir Timashev, Veeam president and CEO. "We’re still making performance improvements, so the beta version will not be as fast as the final released version will be, but those who are interested in trying it out and giving us their feedback will have a strong voice in helping to create the final version of the product."
New features in Veeam Reporter Enterprise include:
- Enterprise-level reporting – The Veeam Reporter Enterprise client-server architecture provides a web-access interface and SQL database back-end, allowing any administrator to generate and view granular reports on his or her area of interest.
- Unattended data collection and ad hoc reporting – Veeam Reporter Enterprise separates the data collection and report generation steps, so users can set automated collection to occur at specific intervals, ensuring an up-to-date view is ready any time.
- Configuration change management – Veeam Reporter Enterprise updates the SQL database incrementally, allowing configuration change management reporting. Administrators can get point-in-time views of their virtual environment and generate reports to analyze configuration changes over time.
Pricing and Availability The beta version of Veeam Reporter Enterprise is available immediately at no charge and will work until July 15. Beta participants should note that due to planned enhancements between now and general availability, no upgrade path will be provided from the beta to the release version, and all history will be lost. Also, the performance of this beta version in large deployments is not the one expected in the final release version.
