Azure Automation provides process automation and configuration management to OMS.
It automates manual processes and helps to enforce configurations for physical and virtual computers.
- PowerShell Desired State Configuration
- Azure Runbooks
Azure Update Management
The Update Management solution in OMS allows you to manage operating system security updates for your Windows and Linux computers deployed in Azure,
on-premises environments, or other cloud providers.
You can quickly assess the status of available updates on all agent computers and manage the process of installing
required updates for servers.
- OMS Agent for Windows and Linux
- Data Collection and Update Assessments
- Create Update Deployment
- Install Updates
Azure Backup provides data backup and restore services for OMS.
It protects your application data and retains it for years without any capital investment and with minimal operating costs.
- Backup Windows Machines with Azure Backup Agent
- Microsoft Azure Backup Server
- Azure Virtual Machine Extensions
Azure Site Recovery
Azure Site Recovery provides business continuity by orchestrating replication of on-premises virtual and physical machines to Azure,
or to a secondary site. If your primary site is unavailable, you fail over to the secondary location so that users can keep working,
and fail back when systems return to working order.
- Replication of Hyper-V virtual machines
- Replication of VMware virtual machines
- Replication of physical Windows and Linux servers
Azure Migration Center
Whether you are transferring data, migrating infrastructure, or modernizing apps, Azure offers the help you need.
With the Azure Migration Center you can start migration of your VMs or databases in three easy steps:
discover, migrate, optimize.
- Virtual Machine Migration
- Database Migration
Azure Monitoring and Log Analytics
Performance issues in your cloud app can impact your business. With multiple interconnected components and frequent releases, degradations can happen at any time.
Having a holistic view of your application and infrastructure is key to monitoring your Azure environment.
Log Analytics provides monitoring services for OMS by collecting data, like events, performance data, … from managed resources into a central repository.
Once collected, the data is available for alerting, analysis, and export.
- Azure Monitor
- Metrics and Alerts
- Azure Activity Log
- Diagnostic Logs
- Log Analytics
Azure Security Center provides unified security management and advanced threat protection across hybrid cloud workloads.
With Security Center, you can apply security policies across your workloads, limit your exposure to threats, and detect and respond to attacks.
- Azure Security Center
- Configure Security Policies
- Protect Your Resources
- Respond to Incidents
Microsoft has long been providing products for managing enterprise environments.
Multiple products were consolidated into the System Center suite of management products in 2007.
With more computing resources moving to the cloud, and to support future applications, a new approach to management was required.
Operations Management Suite (also known as OMS) is a collection of management services that were designed in the cloud from the start.
Rather than deploying and managing on-premises resources, OMS components are entirely hosted in Azure.
Configuration is minimal, and you can be up and running literally in a matter of minutes.
This course is intended for IT professional technical specialists responsible for
managing, monitoring and securing an Azure environment.
