In the last two weeks Veeam updated two key products of its portfolio: Monitor and Backup & Replicator (formerly Backup).
Both releases introduce support for VMware vSphere 4.0. On top of that Veeam included the following new features in Monitor 4.0:
- Storage monitoring
- Hardware monitoring (it uses the CIM/SMASH APIs provided by VMware)
- Process monitoring (both Windows and Linux guest operating systems)
- Scheduled reporting
Veeam offers a free version of Monitor 4,0, that doesn’t have the storage and process monitoring capabilities, the performance history, the capacity planning data in scheduled reports, and the unlimited alarms.
