StacksWare is excited to announce native integration with Hyper-V hypervisor environments.

The challenge with application inventory for Hyper-V environments

To effectively manage their software assets, IT administrators need a comprehensive view into their application landscape. Hyper-V administrators have the especially challenging task of monitoring end-user application usage as VDI or virtual servers are often dynamically created to service demand. Moreover, tracking software that is licensed per physical core or processor has been a painstaking process since virtual workloads often migrate from one host to another with Live Migration.

A complete solution for the modern Hyper-V environment

StacksWare now provides Hyper-V support to its list of native integrations. StacksWare can inventory applications in real-time from VDI and virtual servers running on any Hyper-V host. Additionally, our product automatically tracks host resource information to correlate application usage to physical hosts. This shows you how much money you can save on applications that are licensed by core or processor like Oracle databases.

Configuring your Hyper-V hosts

Configuring your Hyper-V hosts takes less than 30 seconds. Simply visit the IP address of the StacksWare virtual appliance in your browser, select a new Hyper-V source and enter your Hyper-V hostname and service account credentials.

Assign credentials to your virtual machines

Finally, assign credentials to authenticate into your Hyper-V virtual machines and start viewing your inventory data in the StacksWare dashboard.

See all your machines in one place

StacksWare's web interface allows you to easily view application data from all your machines, both physical workstations and Hyper-V virtual machines, in one place. This also means that your Hyper-V machines can seamlessly be added to groups and reports right alongside your virtual machines. To learn more about group workflows click here.
