StorageCraft Releases Tools To Monitor Virtual Backups
In its ongoing push to make backup of virtual systems smoother and more straightforward, StorageCraft on Tuesday released plug-ins for both Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager and VMware vCenter.
Officially called the StorageCraft Plug-in for Microsoft System Center and the StorageCraft Plug-in for VMware, the new tools are free downloads but require StorageCraft ShadowControl v2.5.1.
Primarily, the plug-ins allow IT administrators and MSPs to monitor and manage StorageCraft ShadowProtect backups from within the System Center or vCenter consoles. Main features of the plug-ins, according to StorageCraft, are:
- Virtual machine backup status monitoring.
- The ability to detect virtual machines that aren't protected by the ShadowProtect agent.
- One-click transition from vCenter of System Center to the ShadowControl Web console.
- Push installation of ShadowProtect agents to unprotected virtual machines.
