Azure Storage Management
Azure storage consumption is growing at an incredible pace, even faster than originally predicted. Organisations have an ever-growing data footprint and are therefore eager to take advantage of Azure and it’s limitless supply of storage and resources. However, as an organisation’s storage requirements grow, it’s easy to lose track of where all the storage is being consumed, which also means the Azure storage cost keeps going up often causing cost blowout.
With Cloud Storage Manager you will be able to instantly see where all your storage is going, allowing you to take back control and save money.
Migrate your Azure VMs to On-Premise
With Carbon you can easily migrate your Azure virtual machines to your on-premise environment quickly and easily.
Simply connect Carbon to your Azure Subscription, choose the VMs you want to migrate back from the cloud, connect to your virtual environment (either VMware or Hyper-v) and Carbon will automatically set up and replicate your VMs to your VMware or Hyper-V environment.
Schedule your VM Snapshots
Snapshot Master interfaces with both VMWare’s vCentre or Microsoft’s System Centre Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) and now Microsoft Azure to give you information about your virtual machine snapshots/checkpoints.
View Snapshot information for your virtual environment, Schedule Snapshot creation or deletions, receive email notifications and more.
Extend SCCM Patch Management
Automate and Schedule a Snapshot of your virtual machines prior to the deployment of updates.
SnaPatch connects and interacts with Microsoft’s System Centre Configuration Manager SCCM , VMware’s ESX and now also Microsoft’s HyperV. By bridging all of these platforms it allows us to remove the inherent risk associated with patching and updating servers. This is achieved by automatically taking snapshots of the virtual server prior to deploying any patches. This ability gives you a reliable and fast roll back if any of those updates cause an issue to your virtual machines.
Schedule Power On and Shutdown of your Azure VMs
If you need to schedule power on’s or shut downs and avoid being charged while your virtual machines are not being used on Microsoft’s Azure Cloud, Azure Virtual Machine Scheduler (AVMS) is the tool for you.
AVMS automates scheduled startup and shutdown of Azure Virtual Machines and can perform multiple granular power schedules. Simply select the virtual machines you want to power off or shutdown, create a schedule and AVMS will complete this and notify you via email when the job has started and completed as well as detailing which VMs within Azure you have selected.
Clone your Azure VMs
Do you need to migrate your VMs within Azure from Azure Service Manager to Azure Resource Manager?
Maybe you need to clone one of your Azure VMs fast and easily?
Perhaps you need to create a clone of your VM (to be used like a snapshot) while you patch or upgrade components of your server and avoid having issues with a risky upgrade?
If you answered YES to any of these, then the Azure VM Cloner (AVMC) is the tool for you.
