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.

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them. I trust…
