By Redapt Marketing | Posted on September 6, 2022 | Posted in Data & Analytics, Microsoft Azure, Tech We Like, Azure Security

All the major cloud providers have products and services that, while similar, are designed for their specific platforms.

In this edition of Tech We Like, we’re looking at some of the tools that play well with Microsoft Azure—tools that can benefit your workloads and save you time and money.

Azure Site Recovery

Microsoft’s own disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS), Azure Site Recovery, excels at assisting in data migrations to the platform by providing you with real-time republication of data, failover, and recovery processes.

Intuitively designed, the tool is exceptionally easy to use. All you have to do is replicate an Azure VM to a secondary region and you can have continual backups.

Movere

Purchased by Microsoft in 2019, Movere is a discovery solution capable of handling every aspect of your datacenter and cloud assessment needs. With this tool, you can better understand what is going on in each of your environments and assess the costs of moving applications and data to the cloud.

The key to Movere’s capabilities is its use of bots to scan your datacenter on a schedule in order to capture everything happening in your IT environment. This information is then made available in a customizable dashboard, along with key insights mined from your data. As a result, your IT teams have complete control over your environments from a single point of view.

One more thing …

It’s important to remember that each of these technologies, while useful and powerful, adds an additional layer of complexity to your Azure environments—along with associated costs. 

Because of this, if you don’t have the skills in house to successfully adopt these and other tools, we recommend working with a partner to assess your readiness to integrate these solutions into your operations.
