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.

2018 is coming to an end and unfortunately, there are still organizations struggling with costs for cloud deployments. Big public clouds such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services rely on the accuracy of the information provided by users.

Overlooked services, usage spikes and outages can heavily impact your cloud bill negatively. In some cases, you are even missing out on revenue. In order to have accuracy you need insights into consumption. Multi-cloud environments also come with a lot of complexity from which three key questions emerge:

  1. How do I control my cloud costs?
  2. How do I get accurate up-to-date data instead of having to rely on estimates?
  3. How can I automate this entire process?
