Azure storage is a powerful cloud storage service that empowers organizations to not only store huge volumes of data from your applications but also access them conveniently while eliminating any threats affecting durability, availability or scalability of the storage. The sheer size and numerous capabilities of Azure storage account means that admins are under pressure to constantly monitor the performance of their accounts. Since a lot of applications directly depend on Azure storage account, any small unplanned downtime can lead to disruption of service for customers. Applications Manager ensures that you focus on your customers while your Azure storage account is well taken care of.
Availability and health are the two most vital stats that empower a monitor to deliver maximum performance. With the overview tab, get an overall view of the performance and availability history as well as configuration details of your Azure storage account.
Track details regarding capacity, throughput and latency of your blobs, tables, files and queues. View requests successfully processed and get a direct insight into failed requests, segregated based on the reasons for failure such as timeout errors, throttling errors, network errors etc.
Blobs help in storing large amounts of unstructured binary data and it is absolutely necessary to ensure that these blobs are at all times, ready to be scaled to accomodate the increase in data, and to ensure the data is always safe and available.
Meant for storing structured datasets and allows rapid access to large quantities of data. Let your tables perform to their potential with Applications Manager's constant monitoring and instant notifications in times of outages.
Files facilitate a system of shared storage for applications using the standard SMB protocol that allows storage sharing between various cloud services and your Azure virtual machines. Migrating on-premise applications that rely on file shares to run on cloud environments or Azure virtual machines is one of the primary advantages of using File storage. It also facilitates file sharing across components via mounted shares and on-premise applications can access file data in a share via the File service REST API. With Applications Manager, bring simple performance monitoring to such complex setups.
Queues primarily make sure that communication between various components in the cloud service is feasible and provides a reliable messaging system for smooth workflow. Any stoppage in the flow of messages can result in poor delivery of service. Monitoring all the key metrics of your queues helps prevent or mitigate the effects of such unprecedented outages.
