Microsoft ha appena rilasciato la versione 9.1 del tool di Assessment and Planning Toolkit (MAP). Questo tool fornisce funzionalità di assessment (inventory hw/sw) ma anche di planning in modo da proporre degli scenari di ottimizzazione e consolidamento relativamente alle ultime tecnologie Microsoft. MAP 9.1 offre un supporto completo a Windows 8.1, Office 365, tracking dell’utilizzo di Windows Server 2012 R2, Lync Server 2013, SharePoint Server 2013, Exchange Server 2013, System Center Configuration Manager 2012 R2 e SQL Server 2014. Ecco i dettagli del changelog:

Discovery of Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2

MAP 9.1 adds the discovery and reporting of Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2. With the addition of Hyper-V to the Windows client OS in Windows 8, MAP will now correctly report the virtualization technology and hypervisor version.

Windows Server 2012 R2 as a platform for server virtualization

When using MAP to plan your server consolidation/virtualization project, you can now specify Windows Server 2012 R2 as the virtual machine host platform.

Improved SQL Server Discovery

In this version of MAP we expanded the discovery of SQL Server to include components installed independent from the database engine. For example, instances of stand-alone SQL Server Reporting Services will now be included in the MAP SQL Discovery report. MAP 9.1 also adds discovery of the Data Quality Services and Master Data Services which were added in SQL Server 2012. Finally, MAP 9.1 includes the discovery of SQL Server 2014 as well as the collection of UAL data for SQL Server 2014.
