Automation Tools for Azure - Aleksandar Nikolić

Mar 12, 2018 · New York, United States of America

Azure Portal is a great management tool for your Azure resources. People like clean, modern-looking, and easy-to-use graphical interface. However, when you start working on more complex solutions that involve a number of Azure resources, you will quickly realize that GUI wizards don't scale. Automation is a key to fully embrace what Azure offers in a consistent and optimal manner. Various automation technologies exist to provision and manage Azure resources, but how to pick the right one? Azure PowerShell or Azure CLI 2.0? Use imperative commands or provision using the powerful, declarative ARM templates? Maybe best practice defaults with Azure Building Blocks are the right choice? Or, you would like to deploy complex topologies in an easy way with Terraform? Maybe you would prefer Ansible to automate cloud provisioning and configuration management? Join us to learn more about these automation technologies and pick your winner.
