Automating Azure Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Solutions

Aleksandar Nikolic

The 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 IaaS solutions that involves a number of Azure resources, you will quickly realize that GUI wizards don't scale. Automation is a key to fully embrace what Azure IaaS offers in a consistent and optimal manner. It saves time and increases the reliability of regular administrative tasks. In this workshop, you will learn how to create and scale the most common IaaS services, and how to automate the manual, long-running, error-prone, and frequently-repeated tasks that are commonly performed in a cloud. We will focus on using VM extensions, Azure PowerShell, CLI 2.0, Azure Cloud Shell, Azure Automation, Azure Automation DSC (with connection to OMS solutions), and ARM templates.

The workshop includes a variety of practical exercises after each presentation.

Workshop Objectives
After completion of this workshop you will have a solid understanding of how to automate provisioning and management of virtual machines, set up networking, manage virtual machine storage, and some of the common VM extensions using different automating technologies in Azure.

Workshop Audience
IT Professionals and developers who want to automate provisioning and management of Azure Virtual Machines and related IaaS resources.
