Overview of Microsoft Online Management Suite and comparison with SCOM

So you think you know all the features in OMS? Think again! So I’ve been working closely with OMS the last couple of years and to be honest I haven’t yet grasped how much features Microsoft has introduced over the last couple of years and more is coming!

Leverage OMS to detect bad networks –> http://msandbu.org/leveraing-oms-network-performance-monitor-to-detect-network-loss/

So if you now look at all the possible solutions that OMS now provides, it is alot! If you look at the complete picture OMS integrates directly into Azure to be able to monitor Azure specific features like Azure Network Analytics. It can also leverage agents to do monitoring against Windows and Linux machines. Now the strenght of OMS is that you are able to gather all that information (logs/counters/events) from different sources and being able to structure that data to get valuable information, which is much fo the logic that is in place behind the different Intelligence packs from OMS. Since OMS is leveraging Azure, it is easy for them to be able to instantly search between thousands thousands of logs.  It also allows them to detect security breaches since it integrates with other Microsoft online services to detect bad known IP’s, leaked accounts and so on. Leveraging OMS allows for Microsoft to add more logic and allows to be more proactive instead of OpsMgr which is more reactive, since it consists of Management Packs and a set of rules which determine how it should react to a specific event. But for a while OMS has been more a competitor to ELK & Splunk then it has been to OpsMgr
