Swiss software company Veeam just announced a brand new offering called the Veeam Availability Console. The free tool is intended to help service providers and enterprises manage their customers’ or team members’ Veeam environments. Here’s more information about the new offering and the benefits and features it provides.
What is Veeam Availability Console?
Veeam Availability Console is a multi-tenant platform that helps service providers deploy, manage, and monitor their customers’ Veeam environments, whether they’re virtual, physical or cloud-based. The cloud-enabled tool is meant to help both service providers and large, distributed enterprises.
Main functions of Veeam Availability Console
Veeam Availability Console's multi-tenant user interface gives both the service provider and the end user the ability to see the exact status of their environment in real time, making it easier for service providers to monitor and manage use and easier for end users to receive support quickly
The tool also provides a mechanism that lets you remotely discover physical or cloud-based Windows servers and workstations, no matter where they're deployed. The company plans to add support for Linux in a later release.
And finally, Veeam Availability Console provides automation and multi-tenancy components, allowing you to manage the experience for multiple end users without having to configure and manage everything manually.
