Snow License Manager 9
Snow is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Snow License Manager 9 – a major version of our leading Software Asset Management solution, which we will release on a ten weeks phased rollout plan. Global general availability is planned for January 5, 2019.
On top of recently-announced price increases and new licensing options for Windows Server 2019, our customers face yearly true-ups and datacenter optimization challenges. With this release, Snow delivers automated license recommendations for Windows Server deployments, including cost modelling based on virtualization density and high availability configurations. On-demand reporting for your entire Windows Server estate includes recommendations for optimizing licenses, forecasts for Windows Server 2019 costs, and highlights risks in your infrastructure
Gaining an understanding of Oracle middleware can be challenging and time-consuming – a task that is further complicated by virtualization technologies. In our commitment to optimizing enterprise software spend and mitigating risk, our first middleware offering provides discovery and inventory data for Oracle WebLogic.
Existing customers with larger-to-enterprise size deployments will benefit from the capability to run incremental daily maintenance. This process has been modified to identify and transfer just the data that has changed since the previous run – significantly reducing the amount of data to process.
This release helps lay the foundation for the next generation of Software Asset Management solutions from Snow that will include additional features for datacenter management, along with new management and reporting capabilities delivered through Snow Analytics.
This version introduces new features, enhancements and corrections. Please visit KB for release notes and further information about the release:
