How IA-Cloud Essentials Benefits You

IA-Cloud Essentials supports these initiatives by allowing you to automate your Azure environment, simplifying IaaS management and reduce costs.

Cost Optimisation

The cost optimisation engine that is built into IA-Cloud Essentials provides a real time view of where you can make cost savings in your environment at the click of a button. IA-Cloud Essentials scans your environment for resources that have become orphaned and are no longer in use, these resources typically make up around 10% of the cost of an Azure environment.

Automated Documentation

Our documentation engine provides full architectural documentation every 2 months for your IaaS services. As part of the documentation, there is a high-level executive summary of the environment and then a detailed configuration for the IaaS services. Whilst this would take up to 72 hours to compile this documentation manually, the automated documentation service reduces this down to a single click.

Automated Alerting

To reduce the time to resolution for customers, the cloud native and agentless monitoring and alerting system provides instant notification of issues, straight to your inbox. This covers both virtual machine metrics as well as environmental metrics. Onboarding is no concern either, with all machines automatically onboarded into the platform with no effort and zero touch.


Upgrading from IA-Cloud Essentials is easy and can provide enhanced cost savings across not only IaaS services but PaaS services too. IA-Cloud also provides automated backups and patching, further reducing the amount of effort required to manage your Azure environment.  Want a Managed Service?
