The ActiveBatch extension for Azure helps IT teams enhance job automation and build complex workflows across environments and platforms.

  • Increase efficiency by reducing manual intervention and errors. Manage job collections and schedule, execute, and monitor jobs, recurring jobs, and workflows automatically
  • Reduce operating expenses with dynamic, just-in-time provisioning and cloud resource management
  • Better scalability to more easily manage large volumes of data and process tasks
  • Integrate Azure services with on-premises systems for greater flexibility in workflow management
  • Enhance visibility with detailed logging and real-time notifications to help identify issues proactively and quickly take corrective action
  • Increase security with encrypted credentials, secure file transfer protocols, identity and access management, and ActiveBatch’s REST API. ActiveBatch encrypts data in transit and at rest for maximum endpoint security and provides many authentication options to ensure only authorized users or applications can execute jobs
  • Automatically provision and deprovision Azure instances with ActiveBatch's Smart Queue tool. Dynamically manage Azure resources to match workload processing demands and automatically provision Azure instances prior to workload execution. Then deprovision them after workloads are completed
  • Gain efficiency in retrieving, accessing, managing, and submitting information across the extended enterprise with the ActiveBatch Web Services API. ActiveBatch includes ABATCMD, which is a cross-platform command line client built on Java that also supports Linux and UNIX command line interfaces

With the ActiveBatch Extension for Azure, your teams can still call HTTP/S endpoints or post messages to Azure Storage Queues on any schedule, just like you can on Azure. This makes it easy to execute scheduled jobs in Azure using ActiveBatch. ActiveBatch’s robust capabilities and environment-agnostic integrations open up a wider set of capabilities than any other SaaS or cloud computing job scheduler on the market.

ActiveBatch’s production-ready job steps simplify workflow creation and automate key Azure functions, such as managing individual or group instances, security tasks, rebooting, synchronizing or terminating instances and more.
