New Features in SIM 5.5

CLOUD Infrastructure discovery

Uncontrolled release of cloud computing into an organization can lead to cloud sprawl, expensive software installs on unused machines, and incorrectly dimensioned VMs. The result is overspend and audit risk. Discovery mitigates these risks by providing visibility into the cloud infrastructure and revealing the blind spots, by uncovering the unknowns that are a potential source of risk.

Snow's Cloud Infrastructure Discovery solution gathers data from the cloud environment, to deliver visibility in terms of service level adoption and highlighting of non-inventoried virtual machines – lowering the potential for overspend and incompliance. 

New Connector - Azure Discovery

The Azure Discovery connector links to the Azure IaaS environment retrieving data about the current VM estate.

New Connector - AWS Discovery

The AWS Discovery connector links to the AWS IaaS environment retrieving data about the current VM estate.
