Course Overview Hi everyone, my name is John Savill, and welcome to my course: Automating Deployment and Scale of Azure Infrastructure as a Service Solutions. I'm a technical architect working with many of the largest companies in the world to help them with infrastructure related projects, both on premises, in the cloud, and normally a bit of both. If you're looking to leverage Azure Infrastructure services, then you need to understand how to provision and manage services in a consistent and therefore, automated manner. This means leveraging PowerShell, JSON templates, and other automation technologies. In this course, details about how to use PowerShell, how to use JSON templates with Azure will be explored, along with integrating these technologies with things like Azure Automation, VM Scale Sets to create an Azure solution that is highly scalable, while optimizing your Azure spend. In this course, we're going to dive into all the elements related to IaaS virtual machine automation, and how to integrate with other service offerings. Some of the major topics we'll cover will include: using PowerShell to provision and manage Azure resources, how to use and obtain JSON templates for Azure services, and creating and using Azure Automation accounts. By the end of this course, you'll be able to automate the provisioning and management of Azure resources. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with cloud basics; however, I'll be sure to quickly review any critical information, and ideally, you should have completed the Azure Storage, Azure Networking, and Azure IaaS courses that proceed this course in the Azure Infrastructure skills path. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to automate the deployment and management of services with the Automating Deployment and Scale of Azure IaaS Solutions course at Pluralsight.
