Gain full access to Microsoft Azure without interfering with your production environment with new Opsgility Cloud Sandbox

Stop overspending on development, testing and training and be granted access to Microsoft Azure at scale.

FLOWER MOUND, Texas, Jan. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — OpsgilityÆ, the leading global MicrosoftÆ (MSFT) Azure readiness firm, today announced the availability of the new Opsgility Cloud Sandbox, offering the ability to create, manage and control Azure subscriptions within minutes, outside of the production environment. The Opsgility Cloud Sandbox enables your team of experts to experiment, learn and perform development and test in Microsoft Azure without the risk of overspending and major time investment of managing and monitoring subscriptions. Furthermore, the sandbox comes with rich reporting built-in for both team and individual cost reporting that simplifies cloud chargeback within a company of any size. Get started online at today.

Full control of Azure subscriptions
The Opsgility Cloud Sandbox allows administrators the ability to enable hard quotas to control both costs and services and regions. Administrators can schedule the creation and termination of an Azure subscription down to the minute of the day on a user by user basis, and set a budget without the fear of overspending. Your cloud experts do not have to fear breaking their production environment, as any actions taken in the sandbox are completely isolated from production. The built-in budgeting and quota management tools allow decision makers to control how much money each expert has available to spend and can be configured to automatically renew on a re-occurring basis.

On-demand lab environments in the cloud
Organizations undergoing digital transformation require the ability to experiment with new technologies and services before rolling them out into production. The Opsgility Cloud Sandbox provides the control needed to enable your team to provision lab environments for proof of concepts and ensure that they do not use services that are not required, and do not live beyond their intended lifespan. This ability not only makes your team more agile, but also makes them more cost efficient.

Enable sales and marketing with on-demand cloud demos
Showing your solution in action is more compelling than talking about it with slides. The Opsgility Cloud Sandbox makes it simple to host a demo environment for any solution that can be hosted in Azure while minimizing costs by provisioning and de-provisioning the solution on-demand. For sales and marketing teams that need assistance authoring demo environments, Opsgility can help with their team of Microsoft Azure subject matter experts.

Better Together – Opsgility online training and the Cloud Sandbox
The Opsgility online training service is a full-featured online training portal with complete curriculum including hands-on labs for most Microsoft Cloud certifications, as well as advanced training for Architects, Developers, DevOps, IT Professionals, Cloud Sales and Decision Makers. When used in conjunction with the Opsgility Cloud Sandbox, companies can enable Azure readiness at scale for a true hands-on learning environment. Opsgility provides a full team of readiness experts to plan and work with your company to grow and maintain your cloud expertise.

  • Hard quotas & spending caps with the option of a reoccurring budget
  • Dynamically add more budget as needed
  • Fine grained control of services and regions across subscriptions
  • Ability to schedule the creation and/or deletion of Azure subscriptions

Pricing & Availability

The Opsgility Cloud Sandbox is available today and can be incorporated into existing Opsgility subscriptions. You only pay for what you use with Microsoft Azure, and enterprise discounted rates are available.
