These datacenters are located in multiple regions across the world. Lumen's Cloud Application Manager along with Lumen's Managed Services Anywhere offering can mange the Azure VMware Solution for you.


All Cloud Application Manager users who want to get their virtual machines deployed directly to the underlying provider or with any other deployment management tool to be automatically registered in Cloud Application Manager.


  • Access to Cloud Application Manager Management site.
  • The user must have access to an already configured provider in Cloud Application Manager, that supports the self-registration of virtual machines.
