New Free VMware Management Tool Released By Veeam

COLUMBUS, Ohio.(BUSINESS WIRE) Veeam Software, innovative provider of data protection, disaster recovery and systems management solutions for VMware virtual datacenter environments, today announced the availability of a new free version of its popular Veeam Reporter product for VMware. Now all VMware administrators can experience the power of capacity planning, change management, and enterprise reporting and chargeback with Veeam.

Veeam Reporter Free Edition includes all the core functionality of the full version of Veeam Reporter, including comprehensive data collection, multi-user support and Microsoft SQL Server backend. There are no limits on the number of hosts, virtual machines, users or the size of the archive, and like the full version, Veeam Reporter Free Edition is certified by VMware as VMware Ready on vSphere 4 and VI3.

"Veeam has a long history of providing free management tools for VMware professionals, beginning with Veeam FastSCP and continuing with Veeam Monitor Free Edition and Veeam Business View," explained Ratmir Timashev, Veeam President and CEO. "We know that VMware administrators sometimes operate under budgetary constraints, so we provide free tools to help them get the job done. Unlike free trial software, our free products don't have an expiration date."

By simply installing a new license file, Veeam Reporter Free Edition can be upgraded to the full version of Reporter to gain these additional capabilities:
    * Full capacity planning (report pack)
    * Historical change management (beyond the most recent 24 hours)
    * Microsoft Visio reports for multipathing, network, vMotion and data store utilization
    * Full access to archive data (for example, to create custom reports or update a configuration management database or CMDB)
    * Dashboard capabilities
    * Automatic report distribution

Veeam Reporter Free Edition is also available as part of Veeam Monitor Plus Free Edition, offering limited monitoring, capacity planning, change management, and reporting and chargeback functionality at no cost for smaller companies with budget constraints. The bundle includes Veeam Monitor Free Edition, Veeam Reporter Free Edition and Veeam Business View.  Veeam Reporter Free Edition is available immediately at no charge.
