SolarWinds, a provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, announced its latest virtualization free tool – SolarWinds VM Monitor for Hyper-V.

“We’re seeing more customers add a second hypervisor to their virtualization mix, specifically Microsoft Hyper-V, based on what they need to achieve and for cost savings,” said Jonathan Reeve, SolarWinds’ Senior Director of Product Management. “SolarWinds VM Monitor for Hyper-V is a useful free tool for users testing a multi-hypervisor strategy and interested in monitoring Hyper-V in addition to their existing VMware hypervisor.”

SolarWinds VM Monitor for Hyper-V delivers an intuitive, desktop dashboard that continuously monitors a Microsoft Hyper-V host and associated virtual machines by providing real-time monitoring of health indicators.

* Quickly check the health of a Microsoft Hyper-V host by monitoring CPU, memory utilization, number of virtual machines configured and running, and much more

* View detailed virtual machine health statistics including VM name, guest OS, and VM state, as well as processor, memory, and network usage

To monitor a VMware host, users can also download and take advantage of SolarWinds VM Monitor for VMware free tool.

When users are ready to expand monitoring to their full virtual environment, SolarWinds Virtualization Manager provides integrated capacity planning, VM sprawl control, performance monitoring, configuration management, and chargeback automation—all in one comprehensive solution.
