Exivity Live on Azure Stack Marketplace

Exivity are very pleased to announce that as of today Exivity is live on the Microsoft Azure Stack Marketplace. The Azure Stack Marketplace is distinct from the Public Azure Marketplace and separate test and acceptance processes needed to be completed before Microsoft approved the offering.

This is because Azure Stack can run offline in “disconnected mode”, so the availability of an internet connection cannot be assumed. Also some features that are available in the public version of Azure are not available in the on-premises version. Since Exivity is public, private or hybrid compatible the on boarding process went smoothly.

We get often requests from companies asking for help getting cost and usage insights across their hybrid cloud infrastructure including, though not limited to, Azure Stack and with Exivity now available on the Azure Stack Marketplace it will be much easier for them to get billing automation up and in running within their Azure Stack infrastructure.

The Azure Stack Marketplace offering provides a quick head-start with Exivity and the product can be explored further by deploying the Azure Stack Template Extractor and Transformer. After you’ve deployed our offering we recommend you reference our Azure Stack integration tutorial in order to learn more about loading Azure Stack consumption data into Exivity.

We are always here to assist you should you have any questions or require guidance. Just drop us an email at support@exivity.com.

Exivity is now available on the Azure Marketplace

The Exivity metering and billing solution is now available on the Microsoft Azure marketplace

“Exivity offers billing automation solution making it a breeze to gain fine-grained financial insights into Azure spend on Azure Stack. ”

― Talal Alqinawi, Senior Director at Azure Marketing

Exivity can be deployed in seconds using the Azure Marketplace. Exivity can extract usage and pricing information from Microsoft Azure Stack out of the box. The information can then be processed into data with a business logic engine resulting in detailed reports breaking your Azure spend down in virtually any way imaginable. Next to the integration with Azurestack, our team also helps Azure CSP providers to implement Exivity for their customers in order to provide direct insight in their usage as well.

Billing Automation for Azure Partner Shared Services

Microsoft recently introduced a new Azure offer type for partners in the CSP program. This new program allows CSP partners to purchase, track and manage Azure internal spending. As Microsoft describes it:

With Azure Partner Shared Services partners now have the same flexibility to use Azure subscriptions in CSP as they do in the Microsoft Enterprise Agreement and Web Direct programs. Partners in CSP will now be able to do things like:

  • Host shared services and multi-tenant applications
  • Deploy internal workloads and management solutions, that manage different customers with different Azure subscriptions
  • Build development and test environments, that are not fitting into Partner Center Integration Sandbox

Not only is the Shared Services usage dedicated to an isolated Azure subscription that belongs to your Partner account, but the pricing for this subscription has its own rate card – which, in general, seems a bit more favorably priced when compared to the standard Azure CSP rate-card. This may bring some interesting opportunities to the table because apart from internal use, Shared Services may also offer applications and services that are shared or multi tenant. Therefore from an economic perspective it may well be advantageous to utilize the functionality of Azure Partner Shared Service to its fullest.
