Asset Manager

Identifique rápidamente, administre y siga todos los recursos de software y hardware

Asset Manager es una solución completa, rápida y rentable para administrar eficazmente recursos de software y hardware. Desde una misma consola, le permite descubrir y tener un seguimiento del inventario de recursos de software. Además, puede generar automáticamente informes de uso para correlacionar lo que tiene con compras y derechos reales de software. Asset Manager también va más allá de simplemente analizar e identificar software. También rastrea el uso a través de la medición e identifica rápidamente si el software está siendo poco utilizado, si permanece inactivo o si no se ha comprado la cantidad adecuada de licencias.

Requisitos del sistema

Quest Workspace Asset Manager requires a Microsoft Windows Server host (“Quest Workspace Asset Manager Server”) and a Microsoft SQL database (“Quest Workspace Asset Manager Database”).
While the Quest Workspace Asset Manager Server software requirements are always the same, the Quest Workspace Asset Manager Server hardware requirements and Quest Workspace Asset Manager Database system requirements depend on the environment— i.e., the number of client PCs processed by Asset Manager. We define three types of environments:

  • Small-scale – fewer than 500 client computers
  • Medium-scale – 500 to 5.000 client computers
  • Large-scale – more than 5.000 client computers

The scale of the environment is important because more clients require more disk storage and will put a heavier load on the server running Quest Workspace Asset Manager.
