Just to let you know Veeam has updated the nworksDEMO simulator, It now works with the latest5.7 MP.
(You can find the What’s New info here)
This allows you to demo the nWorks VMWare management pack in Microsoft System Center Operations Manager without having to create a VMWare vSphere environment
It is publically available here http://go.veeam.com/nworksdemo . User Guide is included in the download package.
nworksDEMO is a great tool for partners, labs and training and demo’s on your (Mobile) lab.
It’s already in use in Microsoft MTCs, in the Microsoft internal SCDEMO environment, and is part of Microsoft Cloud Readiness Training for System Center 2012.
The key feature of nworksDEMO is that it runs nworks MP without any VMware required – all monitoring data is simulated. Therefore it will run entirely offline.
Please note. nworksDEMO does not show all the features of nworks (for example, no nworks UI) – so it is NOT a substitute for a real demo, evaluation deployment, or Prove of Concept. If there are real VMware systems to monitor – then always push the full nworks MP.
But if you want an offline-capable, easy-install, repeatable demo– then nworksDEMO is the answer.
