Overview

xAssets Cloud Asset Management Software enables organisations to manage and discover their cloud assets quickly without side effects. The software includes a Service Management Database and an integrated Configuration Management Database (CMDB) allowing Service Inventory, Hardware Inventory, Dependency Mapping, IT Asset Management, Software Asset Management and Software License Compliance from within a single browser based application.

This gives a holistic view of all cloud services and cloud assets, and offers the fastest route to a complete cloud inventory. Large Enterprises benefit from the configuration options and scalability offered by the software. Complex and unusual requirements can be met, new business functions can be added via configuration.

Cloud Services represent the services you provide to your customers and internal staff. These are registered in the system and managed in terms of availability, reliability, ticketing, maintenance and scheduled tasks.

Cloud Assets are the assets and their dependencies deployed in creating each service. Having both services and assets in the same system allows a comprehensive understanding of dependencies both in terms of assets and providers.

xAssets Cloud Asset Management includes the core Asset Register and the Service Management Interface which ships with all our products. This Asset Management functionality allows users to manually enter assets, change or add data to discovered assets, and the configuration layer allows easy changes to forms and add new data columns.

Pricing

Pricing is lower than our competitors and changes with the size of the cloud network being inventoried. Quotations are constructed as follows:

  • A base license fee covering two users
  • A cost per discovered node
  • A cost for additional users
  • Optional cost per discovered Mac, ESX, Linux and Unix computer
  • Configuration services and training if needed

SNMP nodes and non-Windows devices do not count as licensable nodes even though we discover those items in depth with SNMP. SNMP nodes are included within the server license.
