What is an Azure Subscription?
An Azure account grants access to Azure services and your Azure subscriptions. Within your Azure account, you have the flexibility to establish multiple subscriptions, enabling you to separate resources, whether it’s for billing or management purposes. Within these subscription(s), you can efficiently oversee and manage resources organised into resource groups. Additionally, an Azure subscription has the capability to establish a trust relationship with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD)
The Azure hierarchy follows the bellow structure:
Tenancy -> Subscription -> Resource Group -> Resource.
A single tenancy can encompass multiple subscriptions, but each subscription can only be associated with one tenancy.
Each subscription can contain multiple resource groups, while a resource group can only be linked to one subscription.
Similarly, a resource group can host multiple resources, but each resource can only be associated with one subscription.
Azure Subscription Management
At every management level within Azure, you have the flexibility to implement various management settings, including policies and role-based access control. The chosen management level determines the scope of application for these settings, with lower levels inheriting configurations from higher ones. For instance, when you enforce a policy at the subscription level, it automatically extends to encompass all resource groups and resources housed within that subscription.
Managing a small number of subscriptions on an individual basis is a straightforward task. However, when dealing with a more extensive array of subscriptions, it becomes advantageous to consider the establishment of a management group hierarchy. This hierarchy simplifies the oversight of subscriptions and associated resources, so it is easy to manage overall.
At Valto, we specialise in helping companies establish and maintain an effective management group hierarchy within Azure. We can set up a structure tailored to your organisation’s specific needs and objectives. Furthermore, our team excels in handling day-to-day responsibilities, ensuring that your Azure environment operates smoothly and in accordance with your established policies and access controls.
By partnering with Valto, you can streamline your Azure management processes, allowing you to focus on your core business while we take care of the intricacies of subscription and resource management. Let us help you optimise your Azure environment for maximum efficiency and compliance.

How Valto Can Help with Azure Subscription Services
Valto offers a suite of services aimed at assisting businesses in effectively managing their Azure subscriptions. One of the key areas where we can provide support is in the initial setup and configuration of Azure subscriptions. Whether you want to operate under Pay-As-You-Go subscriptions, Enterprise Agreements, or other arrangements, our team can ensure that your subscriptions are structured and configured to align with your specific business needs. This tailored approach enhances resource allocation and cost efficiency.
Resource management is a critical aspect of Azure subscription management, and Valto excels in organising and overseeing Azure resources within resource groups. By categorising resources into these groups, we can help you gain better visibility into costs and facilitate the allocation of resources to specific projects, teams, or departments. This granular control enhances cost tracking and management.
Security and access control are paramount in Azure, and at Valto we can help your business with establishing robust access controls within your Azure environment. This includes assigning User Access Administrator roles and designating Global Administrators to ensure secure and controlled access to Azure resources. These measures are essential in mitigating the risk of unauthorised access and data breaches.
Valto also assists in setting up and configuring the management group hierarchy within Azure. This hierarchical structure allows for the structured management of resources and policies across your various subscriptions.
Cost optimisation is another area where Valto provides valuable guidance. Our experts help you gain a deep understanding of your Azure costs, usage, and charges associated with your services. By analysing these costs, we work with you to identify opportunities for cost savings and implement strategies that align with your business objectives.
Monitoring and auditing of Azure resources are crucial for maintaining a secure environment, and we can help with setting up these processes. With the use of tools like Azure Monitor, Azure Log Analytics, and Azure Security Centre to establish proactive monitoring and alerting systems, we can enable your organisation to swiftly detect and respond to security threats and vulnerabilities.
Additionally, Valto manages patch updates for your Azure resources to address known security vulnerabilities promptly. Using tools like Azure Update Management, we provide centralised management of updates across your Azure environment, ensuring the security and integrity of your resources.
Valto’s comprehensive Azure subscription services aim to streamline your Azure environment, ensure security and compliance, optimize costs, and empower your business to fully utilise the capabilities of Microsoft Azure.
