Microsoft Azure



Microsoft Azure is Microsoft’s infrastructure platform for the public cloud.

Turbonomic continuously generates actions that optimize Azure VMs, databases and volumes based on real-time demand. Its prescribed actions assure performance, while minimizing cost. Additionally, Turbonomic manages your RI inventory, and prescribes actions that maximize RI utilization and coverage all through the lens of application performance.

Note: Turbonomic integrates with Azure through an Azure service principal and will leverage Azure Resources Manager. In order to enable Azure RI awareness and negotiated rates, you must provide Turbonomic with access to the Microsoft Enterprise Agreement rates.
