Are you looking to optimize your Azure environment? In this post, I’ll tell you about Azure Advisor and how it can help you to do that.
Microsoft defines Azure Advisor as a personalized cloud consultant that helps you follow best practices and optimize your Azure deployments. It analyzes your resources configuration and usage telemetry, then recommends solutions based on that data.
Azure Advisor gives recommendations on how to enhance your Azure experience in 4 distinct ways:
Even better news – these recommendations are no additional cost to you and provide actionable results, in many cases with step by step instructions, as well as links to implement the suggestion.
Azure Advisor runs separately on each subscription in your Azure environment. It can be fine tuned to focus on specific subscriptions or resource groups while ignoring others. To access the Advisor the user can be owner, contributor or reader to the subscription.
You can find the Advisor in the Azure portal by clicking on All Services and scrolling to the Azure Advisor or by searching for it in the search bar. The Advisor currently provides recommendations to several Azure resources: SQL Servers, Virtual Machines, app services, availability sets, application gateways and Azure cache, and more are being added all the time.
Once a recommendation has been logged, administrators have 3 options for remediation in the Azure Portal:
So, think of Azure Advisor as your personalized cloud consultant to help you optimize your Azure environment. With easy to follow guides for implementation of recommendations that are based on your data, as well as choosing how or if you want to implement them, the Advisor is a great thing to have in your toolbox.
