We’ve talked about Microsoft and Azure many times. Men&Mice takes pride for its deep-running synergy with the Microsoft ecosystem. The Men&Mice Suite was the first IPAM solution to fully integrate with Active Directory (AD), and now it is the only Microsoft-preferred solution for DNS, DHCP, and IPAM (DDI, or IP infrastructure management) on the Azure Marketplace.

Our team is at Microsoft Ignite to meet customers, present and prospective, and talk about how to make Azure work better with Men&Mice.

Why Azure?

For those already deeply reliant on Microsoft software (but also for those who aren’t) Azure offers convenient workflows and an array of resources in its Marketplace. Its global infrastructure backed by Microsoft. More and more Fortune 100-500-1000 companies, education and research institutions, and governmental municipalities (to name just a few) are discovering the value Azure brings to the table.

Scaling and migrating your on-prem Microsoft-based corporate network to Azure is not only beneficial on many levels but also simple with the Men&Mice Suite.

Deploying Men&Mice on Azure

Making the move to a cloud platform such as Azure has a reputation for being complex, expensive, and cumbersome. Capitalizing on the cloud is a priority for enterprises challenged by infrastructure sprawl, segmented projects, and mergers & acquisitions, but implementation is often hindered.

Men&Mice can alleviate those issues and create a straightforward path to cloud migration.

As an overlay solution deployed non-destructively, the Men&Mice Suite doesn’t restructure existing network infrastructure but facilitates communication between platforms. By treating all network resources, regardless of location, as equals, the Men&Mice Suite opens opportunities for migration at whatever pace is comfortable for the business.

How to make the most of Azure with Men&Mice?

Azure provides resilience, scaling, and security, and Men&Mice brings options to resolve obstacles in the forms of migration costs, lack of compatibility between services, and loss of control.

The native Azure Marketplace integration and support for features like Active Directory across multicloud and on-prem resources mean customers can freely move between platforms as needed.

The Men & Mice Suite allows:

  • bulk migration and import into Azure DNS
  • workflow extensions,
  • audit trails and tracking changes,
  • granular, role-based access and delegation,
  • support for multiple subscriptions,
  • use of unified APIs to manage all network data, wherever its kept.

Moving to the cloud made easy

Cloud networking, whether single, hybrid, or multi-cloud, is undoubtedly a sensible business decision. Increased service levels, improved network security, and overall uptime of critical network resources serve as validation.

Men&Mice is devoted to helping customers simplify IP infrastructure management and embrace (multi)cloud networking. Visit us at Booth #807 at Microsoft Ignite, download the Men&Mice Suite from the Azure Marketplace, or reach out to us to learn how we can help you.
