Enhanced Fault Tolerance Enables Veeam MP to Continue Collecting Data
Integrates with Veeam Backup & Replication to Manage Backup Infrastructure
Veeam® Software, innovative provider of backup, replication and virtualization management solutions for VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V, today announced Veeam® Management Pack™ (MP) v6.5 for VMware.
Veeam MP extends deep VMware monitoring, management and capacity planning to Microsoft System Center, providing complete visibility of physical and virtual infrastructures and applications, all from one console. With Veeam MP, IT can leverage its existing investment in Microsoft System Center to manage the vSphere environment from a management platform they already use and know well.
“We’ve spent the last seven years developing management and data protection solutions for the modern data center,” said Ratmir Timashev, CEO of Veeam. “More than 2,500 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. And now that Veeam MP integrates with the No. 1 data protection solution for virtualization, Veeam Backup & 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. If vCenter goes down, Veeam MP v6.5 automatically fails over and reconfigures so that data will be collected directly from vSphere hosts. When vCenter is restored, Veeam MP returns to the default data collection method without interruption. Enterprise IT need never worry that a failure in their virtual environment will cause monitoring failure.
“In the world of VMware monitoring, the name Veeam has become synonymous with quality,” said
In addition, Veeam MP 6.5 integrates with Veeam Backup & Replication™ so that IT can manage the backup infrastructure directly from Microsoft System Center, further unifying data center management in a single console. After Veeam MP discovers the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure, it can monitor a wide array of items including free disk space on proxy repositories, availability of WAN accelerators and backup proxies, and verification of virtual machine (VM) restorability. It can also monitor the status of backup jobs running on backup servers, including performance metrics for backup jobs, with alerts for failure and duration and much more.
