Sneak Peek : FastSCP 2.0 from Veeam for ESX Server



I got to test the FastSCP version 2.0 against my ESX Servers and I was truly impressed with this tool! The new features are totally cool! The tool will be released on 26th Feb 2007, coming Monday thus.

Check out the cool new features:




  • ESX to ESX direct copy. FastSCP 2.0 allows a user to copy files directly between ESX servers or within one ESX server. Copying is fast and secure and doesn’t require any configuration or setup.
  • Multiple ESX Management. The new version allows a user to work with several ESX servers at the same time within a single interface. All servers are displayed as a folder tree in the Windows Explorer-like UI. The user can easily navigate through the folder tree and switch from one server to another.
  • Complete File Management & Windows Integration. FastSCP allows a user to work with ESX servers just like one works with files and folders in Windows. FastSCP supports both Drag n’ Drop and Copy & Paste.


And if you have forgotten, its a FREE TOOL!

Veeam CEO Ratmir on the new version:

“In a short period of time since its first release in October, 2006 FastSCP has become a very popular tool among ESX administrators“- said Ratmir Timashev, Veeam Software president and CEO. “The new version is built on customer feedback, and brings the product to the next level with new functionality, scalability, security and ease-of-use.”

Veeam FastSCP doesn’t require any ESX server reconfiguration. It has a Windows Explorer-like user interface familiar to any Windows user. Any administrator can install FastSCP on his/her workstation and start copying files right away.




My advice: You have to have this tool in your toolkit as an ESX Administrator!
