Microsoft OMS Now Requires an Azure Subscription

Microsoft has been putting a lot of effort into its Operations Management Suite (OMS) since it delivered demos to the press at Ignite 2015. Over the course of the last year the company has developed new dashboards that help expose new functional process and services that literally tie on-premises and the Microsoft cloud together.

With the release of System Center 2016 this week at Ignite 2016, it’s even more clear that OMS is the cornerstone of the entire suite. As such, Microsoft seems ready to make some money off of it.

Today Microsoft has announced new licensing for OMS workspaces that now also requires an Azure subscription. Additionally, the company is deprecating the OMS free tier.  Customers using the free tier will today be met with a message to associate OMS with an Azure subscription.

With OMS as the lynchpin of System Center and a true management conduit between on-premises operations and the cloud, there’s no better time to start digging deep into the entire suite. And, there’s no better way to do that than to register for IT/Dev Connections 2016. IT/Dev Connections runs from October 10-13, 2016 at the ARIA resort in Las Vegas.
