Veeam Introduces Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure and New Veeam Management Pack v8 for System Center

The latest addition to Veeam’s family of free tools, Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure provides secure file copy to and from Azure VMs; Veeam Management Pack v8 simplifies resource planning and adoption of hybrid clouds.

Veeam Software, which provides availability solutions for the data center, has announced two new solutions: Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure and Veeam Management Pack (MP) v8 for Microsoft System Center. Both will help customers more easily adopt Microsoft’s hybrid cloud as part of their IT strategy. Both products are now available in Beta. Veeam will also be offering “first looks” of Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure and Veeam Management Pack v8 for System Center at Microsoft Ignite, Booth No. 114 from May 4–8, 2015 in Chicago, IL.

Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure joins the Veeam family of free tools for the IT community, which also includes Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE, Veeam Backup Free Edition, Veeam ONE Free Edition and Veeam Task Manager for Hyper-V. Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure simplifies and accelerates the use of a hybrid cloud for organizations large and small, according to the company.

This latest free tool for IT administrators and IT developers utilizing Azure provides:

  • Simple file copy between on-premises and Azure-based virtual machines (VMs)
  • Data transfers over HTTPS, and thus does not require a VPN tunnel between the on-premises deployment and Azure
  • Automatic scheduling of file copy jobs, so these jobs can be configured for periodic copies to and from Azure VMs, providing assurance to IT managers
  • A wizard-driven user interface that enables jobs to be set up using just a few clicks and without knowledge of scripting

Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure requires no additional software or purchases, and while it is a simple tool, it reduces a lot of the barriers, such as connection issues and management complications for moving data to and from an on-premises location to an Azure VM. In addition, this tool propels the adoption of Azure by limiting one of the biggest inhibitors to public cloud adoption—the lack of robust solutions with the ability to simply and easily copy files to and from Azure VMs.

Management Pack v8
Another new release, Veeam Management Pack v8 for Microsoft System Center builds on the product’s monitoring, alert management, and reporting foundation with support for the latest on-premises hypervisor platforms, and new hybrid cloud planning tools.

New capabilities in Veeam MP v8 include:

  • An Infrastructure Summary report that provides a high-level report view of the virtual infrastructure. By including achieved densities in areas such as storage over-provisioning, the report makes it easy to determine and communicate overall IT system status and efficiency to business managers.
  • Enhanced hybrid cloud planning for businesses looking to extend their operations to the hybrid cloud. Veeam MP v8 includes enhanced analytics of on-premises workloads and predicts the appropriate IaaS resources needed to run those workloads in a public cloud, including new Azure D-series VMs.
  • Reporting is extended to Azure-based backups managed by Veeam Cloud Connect for Service Providers.

General availability for Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure and the new Veeam Management Pack v8 for System Center is planned for Q3 2015. Registration for the public betas of both new products is available now: Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure public beta is available at and Veeam Management Pack v8 for System Center is available at
