Instructor-Led Training
Intermediate
3 Days
Onsite or Virtual
Course Overview
In this hands-on course, students will learn how to automate Azure Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) using templates, command line tools and configuration manager services.  Students will learn how to automate Azure IaaS using either the Azure PowerShell cmdlets or the Azure CLI tools. This will include creating, updating, and deploying IaaS resources. From there, students will learn how to author, maintain, and deploy Infrastructure as a Service using resource manager templates (Infrastructure as Code) with Azure Resource Manager Templates. Finally, we will review configuration management options such as Azure Automation DSC, Chef, Puppet, Ansible etc. to teach the student how to apply configuration management techniques for managing virtual machines at scale.
