Chapter 11
Managing Azure

This chapter focuses on a few management aspects of Azure. This is an architecture book, so the goal is not to go into operational details but rather to focus on aspects of management that are important to the overall governance, security, and effectiveness of the environment. The primary focus will be on the best way to deploy resources, command-line interactions, and automation.

In this chapter, you will learn to:

  • Perform management using PowerShell and the CLI.
  • Deploy resources with ARM JSON templates.
  • Use technologies such as Azure Bastion Host and the Windows Admin Center.
