Azure Windows Virtual Machines Management

Azure Virtual Machines is an infrastructure-as-a-service cloud platform that allows users to deploy self-managed Windows and Linux virtual machines onto Microsoft Azure.

CloudMonix monitors and visualizes state of Windows Azure Virtual Machines by collecting a wide range of performance metrics regarding the VM and applications running in it. CloudMonix helps to save on Azure costs by automatically shutting down VMs when they’re not needed. Additionally, users can easily automate recovery procedures, like restarting failed windows services.

Setting up Azure Windows VMs in CloudMonix takes just a couple of minutes, since the most important metrics, alerts and automation are preconfigured in default templates.
