Allow your team to self-provision, request approval, and access Azure virtual machines without sharing official Azure Portal access, decreasing deployment times and reducing human error.
Give your team more control over the cloud resources they need without handing over the keys to full admin access. Hive Self-Service Azure Portal allows you to configure approval rules to avoid billing overruns or configuration problems. Each time a VM is created you receive a business approval email.
Meanwhile, the user is able to see a full list of Azure machines, stop or start their VMs, request RDP files, and schedule VM start and stop times, all through a simple HTML interface with built-in authentication.
Hive is a web portal that connects to your Azure account and infrastructure, allowing registered users to log in, view virtual machines, start and stop VMs, request a newly provisioned VM, and download RDP files, all without providing full admin access to your Azure Portal.
