Azure Discovery for CMDB and Service Mapping

Looking for a way to include Microsoft Azure assets in the CMDB? How about application dependency and service mapping across Azure and on-premise assets? Virima has you covered. Virima Discovery easily and seamlessly integrates with Azure to make your cloud resources available in the CMDB. Running Virima Discovery within Azure environments provides the same ViVID dependency and service mapping experience you get with on-premise assets.

Benefits of Virima and Azure Integration

Experience the ViVID Difference

Eliminate the guesswork of making changes and responding to incidents by leveraging Azure integration with the power of Virima Visual Impact Display (ViVID) service mapping. While Virima Discovery automatically provides the relationships and dependencies of Azure cloud assets, coupling the Virima CMDB with ITSM platforms from Virima, ServiceNow, Ivanti, Cherwell and Jira deliver the full ViVID experience you will not find from any other solution.

Truly simple integration

Configuring Azure integration is done via the Virima user interface. No back-end coding or third-party software needed. Simply enter your Azure account API credentials and initiate the import of Azure objects into Virima.

Full control of what goes into the CMDB

Once the Azure assets are imported, they become viewable in Virima as “Discovered Assets”. From here you choose which to move to the CMDB. Flexible sorting features allow you to be as selective and precise as you choose. Future moves and updates can be fully automated.

Maintain a complete CMDB

Now Microsoft Azure assets can be managed alongside your on-premise assets. Here’s an example of what can be maintained in the CMDB:

  • Azure Organizational Info
  • Azure Networking
  • Application and Network Security Groups
  • Application Gateway
  • Azure Virtual Machine
  • Azure SQL Servers & Databases
  • Additional Virima Discovery Details

Application Gateway

Azure Application Gateway is a multi-faceted web traffic load balancer that offers granular management of traffic to your web applications. Because of their complexity and importance for building redundant, always available and secure web applications, it’s critical to maintain a firm grasp of each App Gateway, their settings and supported applications/services.

See the full picture with Virima Discovery

Getting Azure objects into the CMDB is helpful but why stop there and miss the forest for the trees? By also running Virima Discovery within your Azure environments, you will benefit from full configuration and relationship details for the servers and apps running within each Azure Virtual Machine. Now you’ll see how each object is part of a much bigger picture. That picture is brought into focus through ViVID service mapping.
