  • As discussed, I am allocating time for Microsoft related topic for the SE Summit with this agenda:
    - Introduction of SCOM and typical quick start configuration and Veeam MP (with demo)
    - Do u have any insight with Hyper-V 2016 and nano server to share?
    - Cloud Connect Replication (your testing experience)
    - VMBP (your testing experience)
    - Direct restore to Azure (your testing experience)

    Main objective: understanding Microsoft coming release and our Veeam tools in relation to Microsoft and Azure, with demo as much as possible.

    Will 2.5 hours be sufficient to cover all?

  • Veeam Management Pack integrates with System Center to provide app-to-metal visibility and protection of your VWware, Hyper-V and Veeam Backup and Replication environments. That gives System Center, one pane of glass, one unified console for management. Let me show you what I mean.

    Click #1 — Center Section: Blue app + OS boxes appear: “Applications run your business. Apps like Exchange and SQL running on Windows server OS.”
    CLICK #2 — Left Side: System Center box + blue manage arrow appears (without Veeam MP) : “You can manage those applications, and the OS, with a management framework like System Center – best of breed for Microsoft apps.”
    CLICK #3 — Center Section: Virtual infrastructure boxes appear (all solid green boxes) : “But what happens when you virtualize your applications? You need to have full visibility into that virtual layer, if you want to get the true app-to-virtual-to-metal picture. You need tools built for virtualization.”
    CLICK #4 — Right Side: Veeam Backup appears with Protect arrows: “With Veeam Backup & Replication you can protect those virtual machines, the virtualized OS and the virtualized apps running there.”
    CLICK #5 — Left Side: Veeam MP appears with remaining Manage arrows : “And with the Veeam MP, you get complete visibility of the entire virtual infrastructure – the hardware, the host servers, the storage and networking, and the virtual machines. And Veeam integrates that data with the application and OS monitoring built into System Center. Veeam MP will even monitor the Veeam Backup infrastructure. That’s how to achieve full app-to-metal management in a virtual world.”
    CLICK #6 – TOP: Hybrid Cloud appears: But customers are extending their infrastructure beyond on-premises hardware and adopting hybrid-cloud
    Click #7 – TOP: Arrows appear: Veeam is there to help with new planning reports to help make better decisions as they evaluate the cloud resources they will need when they move their workloads to the Azure and vCloud Air. Veeam MP also provides visibility and reporting for backups customers move to the cloud with Veeam Cloud Connect for Service providers.
  • Pricing:-
    MP v8 Enterprise - $250 USD per socket
    MP v8 Enterprise Plus - $450 USD per socket

    The Veeam Hyper-V MP is licensed per CPU socket. ‘CPU socket’ is defined as a single, physical processor chip on a Hyper-V host in the monitored environment

    Not included in Enterprise
    -Veeam Morning Coffee Dashboard
    -Capacity Planning Dashboard
    -Capacity Planning for Hybrid Cloud Report
    -Veeam Hyper-V Analysis Report
    -Veeam Hyper-V Capacity Planning Report
    -Veeam Backup Report

    Ops Mgr Reporting server and Data Warehouse (required for reporting).
    Important! Veeam MP reporting only supports Microsoft SQL Server 2008 SP3, SQL Server 2008 R2 SP2, SQL Server 2012 SP3 and SQL Server 2014 Reporting Services.
  • The Ops Mgr agent running on Hyper-V hosts must be granted the privilege to insert new objects into Ops Mgr as the Hyper-V topology is discovered. This is known as Proxying.

    To access the Veeam UI remotely using your Internet browser, browse to the following address (assuming default 4430 port):
    http://<web_server_name>:4430
  • The Health Status pane shows discovered groups of virtual infrastructure objects and the total number of objects in each group. For each group, the pane also displays a colored bar whose cells represent current health state of objects in that group:
    • Green: an object is in the ‘Healthy’ state;
    • Yellow: an object is in the ‘Warning’ state;
    • Red: an object is in the ‘Critical’ state.

    The Resource Usage pane shows total amount of resources in the discovered virtual infrastructure and displays current resource usage (in percentage) as colored pie charts. Colors on the charts depend on whether resource usage thresholds are breached.

    The default configuration of the Morning Coffee widget can be customized. For details on changing widget settings, see section Personalizing Veeam Dashboard Widgets.
  • App on this host
  • These dashboards can be launched directly from any view in-context of the target object and allow you to analyze the metric history for a specific performance area.

    This dashboard shows datastore metrics (top left), then metrics for all VMs using that Datastore (bottom pane) and then all alerts for the datastore, AND the VMs (top right). This dashboard allows drill-down to get more details and is invaluable for troubleshooting and understanding issues with related systems!
  • Veeam Top Dashboards feature Traffic Lights functionality— that is, warning and critical thresholds that are used to color objects in the widgets. For example, the screenshot above shows that one host is in yellow (warning) state for % Memory Used, and one host is in red (critical) state.

    Performance data in Top dashboards is averaged over the last 4 hours.

    The default configuration of the traffic light widgets can be customized. For details on changing widget settings, see section Personalizing Veeam Dashboard Widgets
  • Example screenshot below shows the heatmap for host CPU and memory usage. The size of each tile represents the available CPU or memory for each host; and the color of the tile represents the % usage of CPU or memory
  • Capacity planning dashboards allow you to forecast the resource utilization for Hyper-V infrastructure objects. To calculate future performance values, Veeam MP analyzes historical performance data for the specified period in the past, calculates the performance utilization trend and applies this trend to the forecast horizon.

    The default configuration of the capacity planning widgets can be customized. For details on changing widget settings, see section Personalizing Veeam Dashboard Widgets.

    To run capacity planning reports, you must have historical performance data collected for at least 72 hours.
  • • Chart slices that display free resources left will be highlighted with Gray.
    • If a Warning resource usage threshold is breached, a chart slice will be highlighted with Yellow.
    • If a Critical resource usage threshold is breached, a chart slice will be highlighted with Red.
    • If none of thresholds is breached, a chart slice will be highlighted with Green.

    • Heatmap Dashboards
    • Capacity Planning Dashboards
  • If the Minimum threshold is breached, an object on the heatmap will be highlighted with Yellow.
    • If the Maximum threshold is breached, an object on the heatmap will be highlighted with Red.
    • If none of the thresholds is breached, an object on the heatmap will be highlighted with Green.
    • If no metric value is available, an object on the heatmap will be highlighted with Gray.
  • for all objects of class: VMware Virtual Machine’ to make the override global.

    • In the Select a group or object field, choose the VMware vSphere Hosts.
    • In the Select a performance counter (Object/ Counter/ Instance) field, choose VMHost / vmActive / _Total.
    4. At the Time Range and Results step, leave the default interval settings.
    5. At the Display step, specify traffic lights color settings.
    Select the Use warning (yellow) and critical (red) thresholds for the bar color check box. In the Warning field, type 10; in the Critical field, type 15.
    6. Click Create.
    As a result, the widget will show hosts sorted by running VMs:
    • Hosts with more than 15 VMs will be highlighted with Red
    • Hosts with 10 to 15 running VMs will be highlighted with Yellow
    • Hosts with less than 10 running VMs will be highlighted with Green


    Heatmap Widget
    The heatmap widget allows you to compare performance metric or property values for several objects. Objects in the heatmap are represented with tiles, the size and color of the tiles reflects the value of performance counters.
    Sample Usage
    This section provides step-by-step instructions that will help you understand how to use the Heatmap widget. Consider the following example:
    You need to analyze the amount of free space for datastores and make sure that there is at least 10% of free space left.
    In a dashboard, click to add a new widget and follow the next steps:
    1. At the Template step, choose Veeam > Veeam Heatmap Widget.
    2. At the General Properties step, specify widget display name and description.

    • In the Select a class to Group the tiles on the heatmap field, choose VMware Datacenter - Storage.
    • In the Select a class to be used for each Tile on the heatmap field, choose VMware Datastore. Note The Heatmap widget has a known limitation for the list of groups and objects selected as a scope.
    If you add several groups and objects in the widget scope, make sure they include containers and tile object classes. Otherwise, the widget may start working incorrectly.


    Capacity Planning Widget
    This widget forecasts how many days remain before the level of resource utilization reaches the specified threshold.
    Sample Usage
    This section provides step-by-step instructions that will help you understand how to use the Capacity Planning widget. Consider the following example:
    You need to analyze memory usage on hosts and make sure that the usage level will not exceed 75% within the next 30 days.
    In a dashboard, click to add a new widget and follow the next steps:
    1. At the Template step, choose Veeam > Veeam Capacity Planning Widget.
    2. At the General Properties step, specify widget display name and description.
    3. At the Scope step, choose what infrastructure objects will be included in the widget scope:
    • In the Specify a scope by selecting a group of objects or object container box, add VMware Clusters.
    • In the Select a class of objects to calculate capacity prediction field, choose VMware vSphere Host.
