Veeam extends VMWare monitoring to Microsoft System Centre

Software provides complete visibility of physical and virtual infrastructures and applications from one console.

Software firm, Veeam, has extended deep VMware monitoring to Microsoft System Center, providing complete visibility of physical and virtual infrastructures and applications from one console.

The Veeam Management Pack will allow IT departments to leverage existing investment in Microsoft System Center to manage the vSphere environment from a management platform they already use and know well.

Veeam chief executive, Ratmir Timashev, said the the company had spent the last seven years developing management and data protection solutions for the modern data centre.

“More than 2500 enterprise customers licensing more than 100,000 sockets depend on the Veeam MP to manage vSphere with Microsoft System Center, a management framework they already know and trust," he said.

"And now that Veeam MP integrates with the No.1 data protection solution for virtualisation, Veeam Backup and Replication, customers can use that same console to manage their backup infrastructure.” The new version of the Veeam MP includes enhanced fault tolerance that eliminates single point of failure for monitoring, according to a company statement.

If vCenter goes down, it automatically fails over and reconfigures so that data will be collected directly from vSphere hosts.

When it is restored, it returns to the default data collection method without interruption. It also integrates with Veeam Backup and Replication so that IT can manage the backup infrastructure directly from Microsoft System Centre and provides new configuration tracking and alert correlation for all vSphere objects to show IT exactly what has changed within the vSphere environment.

Microsoft director, Brian Hillger, said heterogenous environments were a fact of IT life and that the company was committed to helping customers manage mixed infrastructure.

“Veeam MP extends the power of Microsoft System Center to give enterprise IT additional visibility into vSphere environments,” he said.
