Veeam has today released version 4.0 of its Reporter product. The new features in version 4 are as follows.
The new, redesigned web UI (user interface) also allows you to easily create and customize your own dashboard.
Performance and events
Veeam Reporter 4.0 now collects historical performance data from vCenter to facilitate capacity planning, chargeback, trend reporting, and troubleshooting of recurring performance issues.
In addition to the base report pack, Veeam Reporter 4.0 includes a new report pack for capacity planning.
Veeam Reporter 4.0 is the first to provide configuration reporting on vSphere ESX4 Host Profiles.
Improved change reporting—who, what, where, when
Full Business View integration. Veeam Business View now integrates directly with Veeam Reporter’s web UI so you can easily view virtual machines by business unit, department, location, purpose, service level agreement, type of server, or any other criteria you define.
Improved Visio diagrams
Diagrams of the virtual infrastructure have been redesigned to accommodate environments with thousands of virtual machines. Beta customers report being able to print and clearly read diagrams with 6000+ virtual machines.
I haven’t personally used Veeam Reporter in a while but have always been impressed by the Visio intergration. For more information be sure to check out the product page on Veeam website >> http://www.veeam.com/webinars.html. As soon as I have had a chance to have a look at the latest version I will blog my findings.
