As of now Managed Applications are Generally Available in the Azure Marketplace. We from OpsLogix couldn’t be more excited as a launch partner with Microsoft to be one of the first to offer Managed Application services to our customers.
“Azure Managed Applications enables OpsLogix customers to easily deploy and use our solutions without having to undertake on-going maintenance and servicing complexities.” Vincent de Vries, CEO, OpsLogix
Azure Managed Applications
Azure Managed Applications enable Managed Service Provider (MSP) and Independent Software Vendor (ISV) partners and enterprise IT teams to deliver fully managed, turnkey cloud solutions that can be made available through the Azure Marketplace or through the enterprise service catalog of a specific end-customer. Customers can quickly deploy managed applications in their own subscription and rely on the partner for maintenance operations and support across the life cycle.
Azure Managed Applications is an additional partner opportunity to expand beyond infrastructure and software, by attaching services and operational support to Azure solutions. Partners using Managed Applications can invoice customers directly using Azure’s billing system (when publishing at Azure Marketplace) and use Azure Resource Manager templates to support the lifecycle of deployed applications. All of this enables an even richer cloud ecosystem for our customers and new business opportunities for our partners.
Azure Marketplace as a Distribution Channel for Azure Managed Applications
Managed applications can now be published and made available at the Azure Marketplace on the Azure Portal. Once published by the partner, they are available for any commercial customer with an Azure subscription. This enables MSP and ISV partners to market their solutions to a broader market. Partners are responsible for maintaining, servicing and upgrading the applications, once deployed by a customer. Customers benefit as they are able to run complex solutions without deep time and resource investments.
OpsLogix as a Key Launch Partner
We are excited to share that OpsLogix is among the key partners such as Cisco and Xcalar on Managed Applications. Our OpsLogixOMS Oracle Solution as a Managed Application is already live and published on the marketplace and can be consumed.
We are currently offering the “OpsLogixOMS Oracle Solution” Managed Application on the Azure marketplace. It enables you to get a holistic view of your Oracle environment by inserting your Oracle monitoring and auditing data into OMS with the OpsLogixOMS Oracle Solution Managed Application. Not only does the OpsLogixOMS Oracle Solution provide performance and availability metrics, it also allows you to audit your Oracle environment, enabling you to be compliant within hours.
Although the OpsLogix Oracle Management Pack covers the most common availability, health and performance metrics that are important to an Oracle environment, occasionally you might need other metrics to suit your particular monitoring needs. With this in mind, the OpsLogix Oracle Management Pack contains templates that allow you to add custom monitors and rules in order to monitor your Oracle environment.
OpsLogix Oracle Performance Collection Rule
One of those templates is the OpsLogix Oracle Performance Collection Rule, that allows you to create a Rule that collects performance data from your Oracle environment in order to visualize the data on the corresponding performance view. In this blog, we’ll provide you an easy 5 step “how to” instruction to make use of this template.
Navigate to the Authoring section of the System Center Operations Manager Console, right-click Management Pack Templates and choose Add Monitoring Wizard.
Select Oracle Performance Collection Rule from the Select the monitoring type list.
Choose a name and a description for your performance data collection rule.
Pick the counter name, set the query to be executed and pick the column name of the value you would like to store. Then chose the target of your rule and the frequency of the data collection. Then click Create.
The performance collection rule has now been created so you can check the collected performance data in the Instance Performance view.
Azure Managed Applications is a new service provided by Microsoft which allows Managed Service Providers (MSPs), Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), and corporate central IT teams to deliver turnkey solutions through the Azure Marketplace or Service Catalog. So what does that mean for the end-user?
Basically, the end-users deploy these managed applications into their subscriptions, but they don’t have to maintain, update, or service them. Which is a great key advantage of the Azure Managed Applications services! It’s the responsibility of the vendors to manage and support these applications. So as an end-user, you don’t have to invest in building the application specific domain knowledge, which would have been needed to service these applications. You will automatically acquire application updates without having to worry about troubleshooting and diagnosing issues with the application.
At OpsLogix, we’ve developed a Managed Application of our Oracle OMS Collector, however, it’s not yet ready to market. In the video above, Kristian Nese, Senior Program Manager of AzureCAT at Microsoft gives you a short demo of how to use our Oracle OMS Collector as an Azure Managed App during Experts Live Europe 2017.
