SQL Inventory Manager

Discover, track, and manage database inventory

Database administrators need a simple, efficient way to discover, document, and manage their SQL Server environment as the organization changes. It is important to have a way to inventory and determine which SQL Servers need oversight and maintenance. SQL Inventory Manager offers an organized web-based dashboard that captures core information about the entire inventory of SQL Servers across the environment.

 Discover, track, and manage database inventory
  • View all SQL Servers: Know what you have where and who owns it.
  • Automatically discover new servers installed to better manage sprawl.
  • Create tags and custom fields to organize servers and databases.
  • Perform health checks to monitor server operation and capacity.

We reduced the effort to discover, track, and manage our entire SQL Server inventory by more than 80%.
