Automating Azure Workloads

About This Course

Azure Automation is an Azure service that provides a way for users to automate the manual, long-running, error-prone, and frequently repeated tasks that are commonly performed in a cloud and enterprise environment. It saves time and increases the reliability of regular administrative tasks and even schedules them to be automatically performed at regular intervals. In this course, we will focus on Azure Resource Manager, Azure Runbooks, and Azure Automation DSC. A variety of practical exercises will step you through creating ARM templates, textual and graphical runbooks, workflows, and automation DSC configurations.
