This feature is currently in preview


CloudDocs feature in Serverless360 helps you to generate extensive technical documentation on your Azure Subscription.

The generated documents are published in two ways:

  • Published online on Document360, a widely used Knowledge-Base SaaS Platform, to provide a seamless experience in publishing and sharing the documents with respective stakeholders.
  • Published as PDF files, stored in Serverless360’s storage account or a customer provided storage account based on their choice.

When you generate documents in the Document360 platform there would be no more need of sharing documents on a file share, email, or management of shared folders.

Why CloudDocs?

Interpreting your cost and resource information on Microsoft Azure subscription into readable documentation is what CloudDocs are for. As your usage on the cloud grows, it becomes difficult to track and understand the utilization of the same. Thus, CloudDocs provides documentation of your Microsoft Azure subscription usage to represent your subscription with deeper insights. It will be very helpful, if an executive summary is presented with all details of your Azure subscription usage right from resource groups, resources, Active Directory users, cost & billing, etc.

There are tools in the market that generates documentation or reports on your cloud usage. Over a period, it becomes cumbersome to generate and maintain the documents. Also, it becomes difficult to share such documents and handle their access to various stakeholders.

Serverless360, positioned as a #1 SaaS product to manage Microsoft Azure resources, becomes imperative to be used by your support team to help in their day-to-day activities. It will be of great value if such a platform can provide capabilities to generate documentation on your cloud adoption and usage.
