Cloudockit now features an Assessment of your Azure environment

When you generate a documentation using Cloudockit, you also get an assessment of your environment:

This assessment is presented with the following categories:

  • Availability
  • Best Practices
  • Security
  • Performance
  • Billing

For each of these category, we have developed rules based on what you are supposed to do. For each resource that you have, if you have no warning, you get a green light, if you have one or two warnings, you get a yellow light and if you have more than 2 warnings you get a red light.

Regarding the rules that are implemented, here are a few examples:

  • Performance: A Web Site without Always On may be slow the first time so we recommend to activate that
  • Billing: If you have a Virtual Machine with an Average CPU that is less than 10% we recommend that you scale down the Virtual Machine
  • Availability: A storage without Geo-Redundancy is NOT durable in the case of a complete regional outage or a disaster in which the primary region is not recoverable.

For each of this element, you get more details if you go in the resource section:

As you can see, for each warning you get the Type (which is the column in the assessment table), the Criticality, a short Description and a link on how to correct that.
