Veeam announces management suite for VMware


This just in...

CLEVELAND, Ohio, Feb. 18, 2008 – Veeam Software, innovative provider of systems management tools for VMware ESX Server environments, today announced the Veeam Management Suite for VMware, a comprehensive suite designed to address many of the common challenges faced by ESX administrators. The Veeam Management Suite for VMware works with and extends VMware VirtualCenter to help simplify the management of virtual environments – thereby reducing costs, increasing productivity and mitigating risk.

“Virtualization technology offers an opportunity to dramatically improve the flexibility and manageability of enterprise systems,” said Ratmir Timashev, Veeam Software president and CEO. “On the other hand, fast virtualization adoption by medium and large enterprises creates new systems management challenges. These new virtualized environments call for different approaches, as well as new management tools. Traditional physical systems management tools simply aren’t designed to do it. Veeam has created the most comprehensive set of tools designed specifically for VMware ESX environments.”

“IT organizations that seek improvements in areas such as total cost of ownership as a consequence of implementing virtual server technology should take action to ensure that the management of this new shared services architecture doesn’t begin to eat into these savings,” said Cameron Haight, research vice president, Gartner, Inc. “IT operations personnel should seek out tools that not only provide the needed level of visibility, but ideally work to break down traditional management ‘silos’ to reduce integration costs and improve information sharing.”



Capabilities offered by the Veeam suite include:

  • Reporting and Documentation – Veeam Reporter automatically discovers and collects information about the VMware Infrastructure 3 environment, its components and configuration settings, including virtual machines, network, storage and VMotion. Reporter generates comprehensive reports in Visio, Excel, Word or PDF formats to help ESX administrators with configuration and change management. In addition, Reporter’s Storage Capacity Report helps administrators and datacenter managers with storage management, capacity planning and chargeback.

  • Performance monitoring and troubleshooting – Veeam Monitor is an agentless solution that supports the monitoring of multiple ESX Servers and multiple VirtualCenters. Veeam Monitor provides single-screen detailed reporting and alerting of key usage and performance statistics by cluster, resource pool or virtual machine.

  • Configuration management – Veeam Configurator allows administrators to manage advanced settings and subsystems of multiple VMware ESX Servers easily without accessing the command line, writing scripts or manually editing configuration files. Veeam Configurator provides a Windows GUI that integrates with and extends the capabilities of VMware VirtualCenter.

Pricing and Availability

The Veeam Management Suite for VMware is available immediately, and will be demonstrated at VMworld Europe in Cannes, Feb. 26-28. More information on the suite, including free trial downloads, is available at http://www.veeam.com/vmware-esx-management-suite.html. North American pricing for the suite begins at $270 USD per socket.

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…

Redhot Future Of IT Part 2 :Virtualized Workplaces

Click on the title to hear what I have to say, alternatively click here to listen to what I have to say here.

So what is a virtualized workplace? Does it mean it does not exist? That it's virtual? Well in a certain way YES. This is where the future of our workplace is going to be. Well it is already a reality in some countries.

OK lets start by asking ourselves these questions:
Do you really bond with your colleagues? (think Team cohesiveness)
Do you spend great amount of hours talking about great things that you will do together? (think collaboration)
Do you really feel that you give 100% at work? (think effectiveness)
What do you really miss at your desk? (think personalization)
Is your desk comfortable enough? (Again think optimizing personalization, OK you have done your best to make it your place)Does it really matter to your employer that you are there for him/her? (think commitment)
Or do you get micromanaged over petty issues? (think mismanagement)
Do you see your employees perfor…

A Collection of Threnodies : Part 1

Whale Fall
-----------------

Dress me up in my new threads
clasp my greasy palms
grease my hair
I'm ready for the fall


Watch at all the decadence
watching the avalanche
I'm slipping down
losing my buoyancy


What's become of us
where have we come
this far, this close
close to the doors


I hear them, sublimal chants
I'm on the run
I race through the human sea
I am the king!


I'm the slave
to my own undoings
I'm the jester in my courtyard
We jest as we run


We're strolling on that thin rope
we grope as we rope
we're true heros
we're the survivors


we're the scavengers
we're the friends
we're the lovers
we're the unbred


Soon awaiting the fall
we're lurking on us
we're osedaxing us
we're soon going to be done
we'll soon be arrested
