With ProHVM you can manage Hyper-V Servers and virtual machines both locally and remotely. ProHVM enables you to manage multiple versions of Hyper-V in one application, and from almost any version of windows. Use it on Servers, desktops and Core installations both 32 and 64-Bit. Using ProHVM you can connect to and manage Hyper-V servers in other domains and workgroups using different credentials.
It is very useful on installations of free Microsoft Hyper-V Server where you cannot run Microsoft Hyper-V manager locally. ProHVM Standard Is FREE for personal and commercial use!
ProHVM is licensed per managed host. so if you manage one host using two clients it is one license but if you manage two hosts you will need two licenses.
