The Veeam nworks Management Pack provides scalable, fault-tolerant and agentless VMware infrastructure monitoring and management directly in Microsoft System Center, eliminating the need for a separate monitoring framework.
It provides continuous monitoring of large virtual environments including a centrally managed, distributed architecture providing scalability and automatic failover and load balancing. Full integration is provided with VMware and System Center and it enables all System Center functionality including alerts, diagrams, dashboards, reporting, auditing, notifications, responses and automation for all VMware components including vCenter, clusters, hosts, virtual machines, storage and hardware. A detailed health model with metrics and events including advanced metrics such as memory pressure and disk I/O per second and a comprehensive knowledge base are provided.
Application data are provided from agents running inside virtual machines to produce end-to-end visibility from the physical server, the hypervisor, virtual machines and the applications and services that are running. it collects data agentlessly from the vSphere API and is scalable. View information by department or location or set up thresholds and alerts by server function or service-level agreement.
- Enterprise strength: The nworks Management Pack provides continuous monitoring of the largest, most demanding virtual environments.
- Complete integration: The nworks MP integrates fully with both VMware and System Centre. It enables all System Centre functionality.
- Proven architecture: The nworks MP collects data agentlessly from the vSphere API, eliminating the "tunnel vision" of an OS agent running in the VM and the overhead, risk and limited lifespan of an agent running in the hypervisor. The nworks MP has proven itself in more than 700 deployments. It's a scalable, reliable and mature solution that performs well with both VMware and System Centre.
- Closing the loop: The nworks MP also includes the new nworks PRO Pack for VMware. Together, the nworks MP and PRO Pack close the loop on VMware monitoring by automating problem resolution using System Centre Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM).
