Azure VMware Solution


It is crucial to monitor the resource utilization in order to take timely action. This solution helps in setting up Azure Monitor alerts for Azure VMware Solution Private Cloud. Action owners will receive email notifications if utilization metrics exceeds set threshold.

Please do not operate Azure VMware Solution Private Cloud above the thresholds provided below. If you ignore alerts for the threshold values below then in case of outage, Azure credits are not provided. Similarly, do not upgrade HCX past the latest greenfield tested version. If you do so, no Azure credits are provided for any outage.

Current Version: v1.1.0 (Apr 15, 2024)
