Microsoft’s Operations Management Suite brings together a collection of cloud-based services that help businesses to monitor and manage their on-premise and cloud infrastructure in one place.
Monitoring solutions such as System Center Operations Management (SCOM) and Azure Monitor offer complex and powerful functionality, and Azure provides numerous intuitive management interfaces. However, it can be challenging to keep track of the tools and platforms that administrators and DevOps teams need to monitor and manage the health of servers and applications in multiple locations.
Operations Suite Management (OSM) unites several cloud-based tools in a single simple and convenient interface with intuitive visualizations and easily queried records.
OMS Is an All-in-One Infrastructure Management Solution
OSM is a versatile suite of tools that can gather information from a wide variety of platforms, including on-premises servers, servers running on the cloud in Azure (and AWS or VMWare) – even servers running on Linux. Wherever your servers are hosted and whatever software they use, OSM can gather performance, availability, and security information to present in an easily navigated interface.
The information it gathers is collected in a single location and made available via a simple search language, which can also be used to build custom dashboards.
As the name suggests, OSM isn’t just about monitoring. It also provides simple interfaces for many everyday infrastructure management tasks. Automations can be created via a simple drag-and-drop interface. Users can quickly and easily launch pre-defined servers onto the cloud and on-premise environments. Servers can be configured and deployed according to templates, improving efficiency and reducing errors.
Because OSM simplifies the process of managing hybrid cloud deployments in multiple locations, it can help businesses optimize infrastructure and staffing costs, maximizing the impact of their IT budgets.
The main components of OSM are:
- Log Analytics, which provides real-time monitoring, gathering data from multiple sources and transforming it into actionable intelligence.
- Azure Automation, which is used to automate infrastructure processes, including the creation and deployment of resources in hybrid cloud environments.
- Azure Backup and Site Recovery, which makes it easy to back up and restore critical data. Azure Backup can back up and restore data from physical and virtual servers running Windows and data from applications such as SQL Server. Site Recovery is a world class business continuity and disaster recovery solution.
OMS offers an intuitive all-in-one management-as-a-service solution that empowers enterprises to take control of the reliability, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness of their infrastructure.
