Demo: Azure Resource Manager Templates


In the previous step, we learned how we can use GitHub to build and deploy solutions on Azure. This video is a quick demonstration of the benefits of the Azure Resource community templates. Here we will take an in-depth look at two different deployment models available in Azure.

You have already discovered that Azure Resource Manager is a deployment methodology that allows you to define what you want for infrastructure. It allows you to define your entire deployment in a file, called an Azure Resource Manager (ARM) Template.

Benefits of using ARM Templates

  • Simple redeployment for test, dev and production
  • Use templates to create Resource Groups
  • Apply templates and automate with PowerShell

We will now move on to the next step which is Automation DSC.
