Start/Stop VMs during off-hours [Preview]

Microsoft

Automate time consuming and frequently repeated tasks in the cloud and on-premises.

The Start/Stop VMs during off-hours solution starts and stops your Azure Virtual Machines on a schedule or by utilization. Save money by making sure VMs are off when not being used.

The Start/Stop VMs during off-hours solution relies on three Azure services:

  • Automation: starts and stops your virtual machines on a schedule
  • Log Analytics: visualizes the successful start and stop of your machines
  • Monitor: alerts and email notification for VM state changes

You will be charged based on the pricing of the services above. Note that the logs for all runbooks jobs in the selected Automation account will be sent to Log Analytics as part of this solution. 

If you use this solution, it will only use automation job minutes and log ingestion. That is, this solution does not add additional OMS nodes to your environment.
