Exodata assists you in pinpointing and deploying the most suitable cloud automation solutions for your specific needs. These powerful Azure Automation capabilities not only minimize expenses but also optimize resource utilization, freeing up valuable time for your administrative team.

Exodata’s Managed IT: Your Framework for Sustainable Growth

Streamline Your Azure Ecosystem

Azure Automation is a Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution that enables uniform management across diverse environments. Intelligent utilization of these tools results in secure and resource-efficient cloud platforms.

Exodata assists in executing intricate automation workflows designed to establish, configure, and oversee comprehensive processes. Such automation can harmonize Azure services with on-premises infrastructures, enforce guidelines during both deployment and ongoing operations, and ultimately lead to operational efficiency and cost savings.

Advantages of Cloud Automation

  • Boost operational efficiency, leading to reduced operational expenses (OpEx)
  • Automate the lifecycle—from creation and deployment to monitoring and comprehensive management—of cloud resources
  • Enable versatile governance across diverse cloud platforms via a unified interface
  • Automate monotonous, labor-intensive, and error-susceptible tasks
  • Elevate cloud scalability and predictability through standardization and uniformity
  • Utilize a single dashboard to administer and oversee updates across all systems—be it Windows, Linux, cloud-based, or on-premises
  • Centralized configuration management for streamlined control from one focal point
  • Effortless integration with third-party applications and services

Process Automation

Automate routine, labor-intensive, and error-prone activities to enhance efficiency and minimize operational expenses. We can assist you in setting up automation routines that run on predetermined schedules.

Leverage an intuitive GUI for process orchestration, or choose PowerShell and Python Runbooks for more advanced tasks. Utilizing a Runbook hybrid worker machine allows for uniform management across both cloud and on-premises environments.

Configuration Management

PowerShell Desired State Configuration (DSC) provides comprehensive reporting features that notify stakeholders of crucial events like configuration anomalies. Gather inventory, monitor changes, and set your desired configurations using DSC.

DSC enables you to track infrastructure modifications, diagnose unwanted alterations, and oversee configurations across both physical and virtual systems.

Shared Features

A secure global storage option enables variable adjustments without requiring changes to the referenced configurations or Runbooks. This flexibility extends to credentials, certificates, and runtime connections.

Role-based access control simplifies the process of automating your environment by restricting account access without granting edit permissions.

Update Management

Azure Automation facilitates the automation of patch compliance and update scheduling for both Windows and Linux systems across mixed environments. Establish timed deployments to coordinate the installation of updates within a specified maintenance window. Should an update not be suitable for a particular machine, it can be readily excluded from a deployment.

The scope of automation in Azure is extensive and can be applied to a variety of routine tasks, from setting up resources to ongoing monitoring. Explore your cloud automation alternatives below.


Utilize Azure to construct and launch Virtual Machines in both cloud and on-premises environments using Runbooks and Azure Resource Manager templates.


Seamlessly incorporate any Virtual Machines or resources with development platforms like Jenkins and Visual Studio Team Services.

VM Configuration

Set up both Windows and Linux Virtual Machines to meet specific infrastructure and application requirements.


Detect potential issues by identifying changes in machines, then take corrective action or escalate as needed.


Automatically trigger a quarantine procedure for your Virtual Machine in the event of a security alert, based on pre-defined policies.
