The Advantages of Using an Azure Management App for Cloud Infrastructure Management

In today's fast-paced world, managing your cloud infrastructure can be a daunting task. With the rise of cloud computing, businesses have migrated their workloads to cloud platforms like Microsoft Azure. Azure has become a popular choice for businesses because of its scalability, security, and reliability.


However, managing an Azure environment can be complex, time-consuming, and challenging. This is where an Azure management app comes in. In this blog post, we will explore the advantages of an Azure management app with a mobile companion and how it can make your life easier.

What is an Azure Management App?

An Azure management app is a tool that allows you to manage your Azure resources and services from a single platform. It provides a graphical user interface (GUI) that simplifies complex tasks such as monitoring, scaling, and managing Azure resources. Azure management apps can be used on desktops, laptops, or mobile devices.

Microsoft provides the Azure portal and has a companion mobile app, however, they can both be feature heavy and the mobile app especially can be over complicated. When you are away from your desk or want a team to be able to see what's going on in one place then a third-party Azure management app and mobile companion can cut through the noise.

Advantages of Azure Management App & Companion App:

Centralised Management

Provides a centralised platform for managing your Azure resources. With a single interface, you can manage all your Azure resources, monitor their performance, and troubleshoot issues. This saves you time and effort as you don't have to log in to multiple platforms to manage your resources.

IG CloudOps provide a cloud management platform that is plug-and-play with AWS & Azure so that you can manage all your cloud assets across both providers in one location.

Easy Resource Management

Azure management apps provide an intuitive interface that simplifies resource management. You can manage Azure resources such as virtual machines, storage accounts, and databases, with ease. This is particularly useful for businesses that don't have dedicated Azure administrators.

Just cutting through the noise of the main Azure portal is a core component of most mobile companion apps for Azure like CloudOps.

Real-Time Monitoring

Azure management apps provide real-time monitoring of your Azure resources. You can monitor the performance and availability of your resources and receive alerts when issues arise. This helps you to proactively identify and resolve issues before they impact your business.

Resource Optimization

Azure management apps provide insights into your Azure resources, such as their usage, performance, and cost. You can use this information to optimize your resources, reduce costs, and improve performance. For example, you can identify idle virtual machines and turn them off to save costs.

Security and Compliance

Azure management apps provide security and compliance features that help you to protect your Azure resources. You can configure security policies, monitor security events, and comply with industry regulations such as HIPAA and GDPR. This ensures that your Azure resources are secure and compliant.

Mobile Access

Azure management apps provide mobile access to your Azure resources. You can manage your resources from your mobile device, which gives you flexibility and convenience. You can monitor resource usage, receive alerts, and get a single pane of glass dashboard on the go.

Next steps

In conclusion, an Azure management app is a valuable tool that simplifies the management of your Azure resources. It provides a centralised platform for resource management, real-time monitoring, resource optimization, security and compliance, and mobile access.

By using an Azure management app, you can save time and effort, optimize resource usage, and improve the performance and security of your Azure resources. Combined with a mobile companion app this gives you the management information you need when you are away from your desk or on the go.
