As cloud computing continues to transform the IT landscape, businesses are turning to cloud providers to meet their infrastructure and service needs. Microsoft’s Azure is one of the top cloud providers on the market, offering an array of cloud services and solutions for businesses of all sizes. In this article, we’ll explore the suite of Azure tools and how they can help you optimize your cloud infrastructure.
Azure Cloud Computing: The Game Changer
Cloud computing has revolutionized the way businesses approach IT. With Azure, you have access to a range of cloud-based services, including Platform as a Service (PAAS), Software as a Service (SAAS), Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRAAS), and Infrastructure as a Service (IAAS). With these tools, you can create, manage, and deploy your applications and services with ease, allowing you to scale your business and increase your bottom line.
Azure Management Tools
SmiKar Software has developed a suite of Azure management tools that allow you to recover costs and time. Here are some of the key tools you should know about:
Azure Virtual Machine Scheduler - AVMS
If you’re using virtual machines within Azure, you know that they’re billed every minute they’re running. If you don’t shut them down and deallocate them properly, you’ll end up incurring unnecessary costs. The Azure Virtual Machine Scheduler (AVMS) is a tool that automates and schedules the shutdown, deallocation, and powering up of your virtual machines. This can save you significant time and money. Imagine having your development and test servers shut down and deallocate every night at 7 pm, then power back up at 7 am, ready for your developers and application owners to use. By doing this alone, you can save thousands of dollars a year. Try the Azure Virtual Machine Scheduler now for free with a 30-day trial key.
Azure Virtual Machine Cloner - AVMC
Whether you need to migrate your VMs within Azure from Azure Service Manager to Azure Resource Manager, or simply want to clone one of your VMs quickly and easily, the Azure VM Cloner (AVMC) is the tool for you. With AVMC, you can create a clone of your VM (like a snapshot) while you patch or upgrade components of your server, avoiding the risk of upgrades.
