Understanding NMM Resources

When you install the Nerdio Manager for NMM application from the Azure Marketplace, the following resources are created in the MSP's Azure Subscription (Original KB)

  1. App Service plan and App Service (B2)
  2. Application Insights
  3. Key vault
  4. SQL server and SQL database (S1)

The initial deployment is sized to easily accommodate hundreds of AVD users.  The SQL Database and App Service have non-negligible Azure costs associated with them.

  • App Service (B2) - $109.50/month (list price)
  • SQL Database (S1) - $29/month (list price)

For small scale pilot deployments you can scale down the App Service as low as B1 ($55/month) and SQL Database as small as B ($5/month).  This can be done live in the Azure portal without shutting down the application.  However, keep in mind that this may have an impact on how responsive Nerdio Manager for MSP comes with such small resource sizes.

 

Understanding NMM Deployment Scenarios 

Getting started with Nerdio Manager for MSP (NMM) is easy. It is available directly from the Azure Marketplace and setting it up will take you around 30-45 minutes. Once you have NMM installed, onboarding customers or building new Azure environments in NMM is even easier. 

Nerdio provides four different Deployment Scenarios as outlined in this article.

 

Migrating NFA to NMM is an example of a "Landing Zone Only" Deployment Scenario as seen below
