Automating the Azure infrastructure using a command-line interface



Managing a successful Azure infrastructure exclusively through the GUI portals is impossible. The options and the opportunities are too many, and you'll eventually need to deal with the topic of automation. The tool you choose for managing automation in Azure will depend upon the scenario and your personal preferences. Fortunately there is something out there for everyone. You can put together your own toolbox, including scripts from Azure Automation, templates for Resource Manager, and other elements.

The techniques shown in this article just scratch the surface of the available options and are intended to help you develop your own ideas. If you open a free Azure account for testing purposes, not much can go wrong, and changing scripts from one subscription to another is also very easy. If you're looking for additional information on automation, check out Microsoft's Channel 9 [10], where you'll find a treasure trove with videos on all topics. A search for "Azure Automation," for example, will reveal pages full of results. The Microsoft Virtual Academy [11] is another good source with a broad spectrum of training for Azure.
