In Detail

Microsoft Azure provides organizations with resources available on demand, and with the ability to resize and scale those resources to meet current demands. But knowing Azure isn't enough to take your career to the highest levels. PowerShell and the Azure RM modules give you the perfect management tool to script and automate your Azure infrastructure.

In this course, you will start by learning the core concepts of working with Azure, including getting signed in, saving credentials, and working with resource groups. You will learn how to use Azure PowerShell to manage three of the most useful infrastructure resources Azure customers use in their environments: storage, network, and virtual machines. You will also learn how to deploy Azure resources through Azure RM templates.

By the end of the course you will know everything you need to create, manage and operate virtual machines and their underlying storage and network components in your Azure cloud environment, all with the latest version of PowerShell. The code bundle for this video course is available at:
