VMM 2012 R2: Unified (almost) on premise and Azure management through the VMM console

Although it is only simple actions (i.e such as restart, refresh, and view) you can use Virtual machine Manager 2012R2 to manage both on premises and Azure Virtual Machines, by adding Azure subscription to VMM.

Let’s hope the VMM team extend those tasks beyond that.

Unified management through the VMM console

With VMM 2012 R2 UR6, Virtual Machine Manager offers a very simple way for a VMM Fabric administrator to add a Microsoft Azure subscription to VMM. After users have added the Microsoft Azure subscription to VMM, they can get a view of their Azure instances directly from the VMM console, and they can perform some simple actions on these instances.

Although in the long term Microsoft vision is to establish WAP as the console of choice for on-premises and Azure workload management, we still see this feature as a value-add to a large set of users who don’t yet use WAP or who don’t want to incur the overhead of WAP. This option of performing simple VM management tasks such as restart, refresh, and view on Azure VMs through VMM consoles gives Fabric administrators the flexibility to manage both on-premises and Azure public cloud VMs from within a single VMM management console
