Azure Management Tools: What's available in Azure?

In this blog post, we will discuss the different Azure management tools and show you how to make the most of them!

Azure management tools allow you to automate the management of your resources in Azure. There are a number of different Azure management tools available, and each offers its own set of features.

Azure Management Tools Overview: What's available in Azure?

Azure provides a variety of management tools to help you stay organized and automate tasks in your Azure environment.

  • Azure Portal is the Azure-native web interface that enables you to provision services, monitor activity, and perform other common management tasks.
  • Azure Resource Manager (ARM) is Azure's deployment and management service that provides a consistent management experience across Azure services.
  • Azure PowerShell is a set of cmdlets that enable you to manage Azure resources from the command line. Azure CLI is Azure's cross-platform command-line tool that can be used to manage Azure resources from Linux, macOS, and Windows.
  • Azure Monitor is a centralized monitoring solution that enables you to collect, analyze, and act on telemetry data from your Azure resources.


All of these tools can be used together to efficiently manage your Azure environment. However, all of these tools are not created equal. Many of them require an initial configuration or are cmd line tools like PowerShell which is a scripting language.

So everything you need to manage your Azure environment is potentially there, but you need to make a huge investment in time and effort to implement things to get the best out of Azure.


Advantages of using a cloud management solution like CloudOps

Azure CloudOps offers many advantages for AWS & Azure customers. CloudOps provides a unified management experience across all Azure resources, making it easy to deploy and manage cloud-based workloads.

In addition, CloudOps offers a variety of features that can help save time and money, such as cost tracking and analysis, security audits and integration with existing tools and processes. CloudOps also provides comprehensive documentation and support, so customers can be confident that their Azure environment is being managed effectively.

As a result, CloudOps is an excellent choice for customers looking for a comprehensive solution for managing their Azure cloud environment. As an added bonus, if you use AWS and Azure, CloudOps is plug-and-play with both, so you can't see all of your cloud infrastructure in one place.

Cloud management software means that you can automate day-to-day activities like backups and patching for your cloud infrastructure. This allows you to move away from firefighting and get back to your core business goals.
