On the journey of our come up, trying to make a name of ourselves, VIDIZMO and Microsoft have gotten tight – really tight. Apart from being recognized in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Video Content Management, VIDIZMO is also a Microsoft Gold partner.
If you’re on this blog, there’s a good chance that you’re considering VIDIZMO to serve your needs, in which case you may be wondering where you should get VIDIZMO from. You already know where we’re going with this if you’ve read the title of the blog.
If you already have an Azure subscription then purchasing VIDIZMO from Microsoft Azure Marketplace would be as simple as downloading an app from Google’s PlayStore or Apple’s Appstore (depending on which side of the smartphone fence you stand on).
Even if you don’t have a subscription, it’s hardly a setback. All you have to do is sign up with your payment details, which is free. In fact, if you sign up now, you would get free credit to spend on certain Azure products (but I digress).
There are a few ways in which purchasing VIDIZMO off Microsoft Azure Marketplace serves you.
You can take a free trial
We can go on and on about how great VIDIZMO is, but you don’t just have to take our word for it. You can get a free trial for a month or three and find out for yourself. The free trial is provided to you against your Azure account and you can decide if you want to carry on using the program after the trial is over.
You can leverage your Enterprise Agreement (EA) with Microsoft
If you have an Enterprise Agreement (EA) with Microsoft, then you’re in luck. An EA is great to derive long-term benefits from Microsoft. Some of these benefits are financial, in that you get to pay a reduced initial cost and get discounts built into the agreement. You can take advantage of your EA to buy VIDIZMO from Azure Marketplace and use your discounts for Azure services that VIDIZMO is integrated with, such as Azure’s Media and Cognitive services, which VIDIZMO uses for intelligent transcription, translation, face detection, and so much more.
You can save time and resources for procurement
We probably wouldn’t be wrong to assume that your most sensitive asset is your money, in which case you’ll find it reassuring that VIDIZMO is listed in the Azure Marketplace as a transact publishing. One of the perks of this is that you will be billed and your payment will be collected by Microsoft, grouped with the rest (if any) of your Azure subscriptions on the same account, together in a single, convenient and organized place. Another perk is that, since all variants of VIDIZMO are listed in Azure marketplace as Virtual Machines, deployment is quick and painless, yet nothing short of what you would get if you were to purchase it directly from VIDIZMO’s website.
You can pay flexibly
Since Microsoft is the one to bill you, you have the flexibility of paying on their terms. This means you can take advantage of options such as pay-as-you-go, wherein you would only pay for as much of the services as you consume, on a per-hour, per-core pricing structure, and can cancel your subscription at any point in time. This way, you can instantly and effortlessly adapt to the ups and downs of your organization.
You can scale the solution later
We understand that you won’t necessarily know exactly what scale you will need to use your platform at right when you’re getting started. Although you may have an estimate, at the end of the day, it’s just that: an estimate. Deploying VIDIZMO from Azure Marketplace gives you a lot of room for scalability later, be it in terms of CPU, storage, bandwidth or encoding. When you use VIDIZMO hands-on in a practical environment, you will get a better idea of the expanse of your usage and then you can scale your solution up or down accordingly.
VIDIZMO’s solutions are certified by Azure
Being listed on the Azure Marketplace means that VIDIZMO has been certified by Microsoft to be sold on their storefront. By certifying VIDIZMO, Microsoft pretty much guarantees that not only is VIDIZMO compatible with and optimized for Azure services but it’s also free of any viruses or malware that may harm your computer system or your data.
