Azure and Scalr come together to offer top-notch Cloud Management on Azure
Posted on August 6, 2015
We have had a great Summer in Seattle so far and it just keeps getting better!! Today, I am excited to announce that Scalr’s Cloud Management Platform has added support for Azure Virtual Machines. You can now build cloud-native infrastructure on Azure using Scalr’s fantastic management experience for deployment, infrastructure governance and financial policy controls spanning multiple clouds and hybrid environments. The Scalr cloud management platform (http://www.scalr.com) enables you to manage application development across multiple hybrid clouds, whether public or private, shortening the learning curve for deploying infrastructure. The Scalr platform automates deployment, monitoring, and offers governance and policy, including financial cost accountability and compliance controls. Previously discussed at BUILD and with today’s announcement, Scalr has added support to deploy and manage Virtual Machines using Azure’s new Azure Resource Manager on compute, networking and storage. Scalr on Azure will be available immediately in 19 regions (soon to be 24), supporting more regions than AWS and GCE, combined. This broad global coverage that Azure offers will enable you to run your application closer to your end-customers or employees while offering simple management of cloud-native infrastructure using Scalr. You can even combine deployed Virtual Machines with a wide range of Azure PaaS services, like Azure Web Apps, Mobile Apps, or Logic Apps.
