What’s New in SQL Inventory Manager 2.6?

This release of SQL Inventory Manager extends support for database-as-a-service deployments in cloud environments in addition to several general usability improvements and full support for SQL Server 2019. The release introduces full discovery capability for both infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and database-as-as-a-service (DBaaS or PaaS) environments for both Azure and Amazon cloud environments.  HealthCheck alerts are now fully supported for those same environments with direct API integration with Azure and Amazon environments. The usability enhancements leverage modern Sencha web components to simplify tasks of tracking all SQL Server installations and databases deployed across hybrid-cloud environments. 

  • Enhanced Cloud Support 
    • Discovery of Azure (IaaS or PaaS) and Amazon (IaaS or PaaS) instances with easy registration of all instances and databases.
    • Improved HealthChecks for Cloud – HealthChecks are now driven directly from metrics collected by the embedded APIs for Azure and Amazon environments.
  • Usability Enhancements
    • Advanced Filter Grid – Leveraging Sencha components, filter on instances and databases by any combination of attributes and save those filters by name for future usage.
    • Improved Alias Handling – Search for instances by any defined alias.  Inventory instances listing all associated aliases for each instance wherever instance is displayed.
  • SQL Server 2019 Support

In addition to these improvements, the release includes several customer feature requests and bug fixes.
