Introduces advanced monitoring, reporting and capacity planning for Veeam Backup & Replication

Veeam Software (http://www.veeam.com/?ad=pr1) innovative provider of backup, replication and virtualization management solutions for VMware vSphere and Windows Server Hyper-V, has announced Veeam Backup Management Suite 6.5 (formerly Veeam Management Suite).

The new version introduces features and a product name that confirm Veeam’s strategy to continually innovate and enhance its data protection solutions. Veeam Backup Management Suite combines Veeam Backup & Replication 6.5 and the new Veeam ONE 6.5 in a single integrated solution for powerful, easy-to-use and affordable data protection and virtualization management.

Ratmir Timashev, President and CEO, Veeam Software, said: “Modernising the IT infrastructure to leverage the power of virtualisation and the cloud is the key trend in IT today. New Veeam Backup Management Suite 6.5 was specifically built for virtualisation to offer a powerful, easy-to-use and affordable solution for small to medium businesses and enterprise customers. It enhances the power of Veeam Backup & Replication by delivering a comprehensive solution with advanced management capabilities for the backup infrastructure. IT pros have often applauded Veeam for products that ‘just work’ and now, with new integrated monitoring, reporting and capacity planning for backup, they have a product that just works even better.”

Veeam Backup Management Suite is built specifically for virtualization and offers fundamental and far-reaching benefits over legacy tools. In addition to the features introduced in the recently released Veeam Backup & Replication 6.5 (http://www.veeam.com/vm-backup-recovery-replication-software.html?ad=pr), the new version of the suite includes:

  • Advanced Monitoring, Reporting and Capacity Planning for Backup: Administrators can easily identify unprotected VMs, automatically document backup status and monitor their backup infrastructure 24×7. Backup resources can be optimized for current requirements and analyzed for future needs. All functionality works right out of the box with predefined alarms, dashboards and reports specifically built for Veeam Backup & Replication.
  • Advanced Capacity Planning for VMware and Hyper-V: New Veeam ONE 6.5 capacity planning examines trends, identifies over-committed resources and offers flexible what-if modeling. The results are reliable threshold forecasts and provisioning recommendations that help administrators make well-informed decisions regarding the growth of their virtual environments.
  • New Hypervisor Support: vSphere 5.1 and Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V: Veeam is the first vendor to support both new hypervisor platforms.

Brandon Meyer, Engagement Manager, Virtualization, SWC Technology Partners said: “Veeam Backup Management Suite gives my customers unprecedented flexibility. The new Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange in Veeam Backup & Replication lets them restore Exchange objects, and they also get excellent insight into both their backup and virtualization infrastructures with Veeam ONE.”
