New Product Offers Windows Interface, Expert Knowledge Packs For Advanced Configuration of VMware ESX Servers
 

CLEVELAND, Ohio, July 10, 2007 – Veeam Software, an innovative provider of software for managing virtual servers, today introduced version 1.0 of Veeam Configurator, a Windows GUI interface and set of expert knowledge packs (“Experts”) designed to automate and streamline virtual server configuration. 

Veeam Configurator integrates with and extends the capabilities of VMware VirtualCenter, maintaining and building on VirtualCenter’s centralized view and associated benefits, such as VirtualCenter partitioning to simultaneously configure all ESX Servers in a cluster.  Veeam Configurator offers GUI-based centralized control over ESX settings and subsystems not accessible from the VirtualCenter interface, freeing administrators from reliance on the service console.

“The VMware ESX Server service console offers tremendous power for virtual server configuration,” said Ratmir Timashev, president and CEO of Veeam Software.  “Unfortunately, the console only allows you to configure one server at a time. In addition, for administrators who come from a Windows background, the open-source command line syntax takes time to research, learn, try and test.  With this new product, we’ve done the learning and testing, so our customers can quickly configure multiple servers without having to become Linux experts.”

Veeam Configurator 1.0 also comes with five built-in “Experts” that embody essential Veeam expertise in VI3 configuration. These pre-written modules automate key functions such as enabling or disabling root access, ensuring accurate time synchronization, reporting on the current patch level for ESX Servers, and more.  Additional Experts will be created based on customer feedback and suggestions.

At the same time, Veeam Software has made available a free script that provides basic post-installation checks on ESX Server configuration.  This open-source script is intended as a catalyst to continued enhancement by the virtualization community.  The script, and more information about Veeam Configurator, is available at www.Veeam.com/free-script/ .

Pricing and availability

Veeam Configurator 1.0 is available immediately, with North American pricing starting at $120 USD per CPU.  Discounts are available when purchased with Veeam Reporter.  For more information or to download the product, visit www.Veeam.com/Veeam_configurator.asp.
