Block 64 can now connect into a customer’s Azure tenant to pull back data on their Azure environment. This article focuses on the Azure Virtual Machine report and explains how our users can leverage the data found there. This data will first be available to users of the Block 64 Application
Azure Virtual Machines
Block 64’s partners and customers seek to use a product that acts as a single source of truth for all of their ITAM needs. It is much easier to view data in one place than going to find the different data sets scattered through out their environment. As such, having this data available in the Combine can make things easier for our customers. The Azure Virtual Machine report seeks to do this by consolidating a customer’s Azure IaaS workload data into a single place.
Block 64 is able to connect into a customer Azure Portal. In doing so, we can pull a list of a customer’s existing IaaS workloads. This means that we can report back a list of a customer VMs, the VM profile in use, their resource group, and subscription ID. We can also make a separate data pull to identify the storage details of these VMs. This report consolidates both data sets and can show us the disk type and storage capacity of the VMs.
Upon loading the page users will be able to see two graphs. The first shows the VMs that have the largest storage capacity and he second shows the most prevalent VM profiles.
Upon reviewing the table below, users are able to see a list of existing VMs and can use that to gain insights on their current deployment of VMs.
