Veeam Software has announced that Veeam Management Pack (MP) v7 for System Centre will add support for Microsoft Hyper-V.

In a single product, this Veeam MP release integrates fully with Microsoft System Centre Operations Manager, providing app-to-metal visibility, for both Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere layers. This release also enhances visibility for the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure that protects a business’ critical Hyper-V and VMware environment.

“We’re adding Hyper-V support in this major new release of the Veeam Management Pack so enterprise IT has complete visibility of their critical virtual systems, can mitigate risks, and proactively monitor Hyper-V and vSphere, from Microsoft System Centre’s single console,” says Ratmir Timashev, CEO of Veeam.

Veeam MP automatically integrates System Centre Operations Manager’s native monitoring of applications to display virtual infrastructure dependencies. Drill-down capabilities from app-to-metal within compute, storage and network topology maps give IT departments the tools they need to quickly react to problems that could affect business flow and user productivity.

“A business’ ability to clearly see and understand its virtual environment is critical for making informed business decisions that drive uptime, planning and growth,” says Cameron Fuller, a principal consultant for Catapult Systems, a Veeam ProPartner.

“System administrators need the deep insights that Veeam Management Pack provides for both Hyper-V and vSphere environments.”
