Azure Resource Manager simply allows you to configure and implement your infrastructure with a JSON Template.


I had a very interesting meeting with a University recently,  who were interested in using ARM Templates to deploy their teaching and learning environments.

Azure Resource Manager Templates simply allow you to configure your infrastructure within a JSON format. Which can then be deployed via Powershell script or directly from within the Azure Portal.

Here are some key resources and links to help you get started with ARM

In this course I will give you an introduction to how you can build your infrastructure in Azure with Azure Resource Manager, or ARM. We do this with Powershell and with templates. I also explain and show how Role Based Access Control works in the new portal and with Powershell. I assume that you are already familiar with Azure as an IaaS platform and that you have already some experience in deploying virtual machines, virtual networks and so on. This is not an introduction to Azure or to Iaas, I focus only on the benefits that we get when using ARM instead of using the old portal and the old APIs.
