Using Scripting for Deployments
“Life is already really complicated, so we insist on making it even more complicated.”
The infrastructure for your application is typically made up of many components – maybe a virtual machine, storage account, and virtual network, or a web app, database, database server, and 3rd party services.
You do not see these components as separate entities, instead you see them as related and interdependent parts of a single entity. You want to deploy, manage, and monitor them as a group.
An Azure Resource Manager template is a JSON formatted document that can be deployed to create a ring-fenced group of resources
Azure Resource Manager provides a new way for you to deploy and manage the services that make up your applications, most, but not all, services support Resource Manager, and some services support Resource Manager only partially. Microsoft will enable Resource Manager for every service that is important for future solutions, but until the support is consistent, you need to know the current status for each service.
Azure Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) enables fine-grained access management for Azure for example you would only give students contributor access to Azure resources whilist academics and RA would have owner rights.
Azure allows you to utilise RBAC, you can segregate duties within your students projects and teach DevOps, RBAC simply allow you to grant only the amount of access to users that they need to perform their roles and taks which are required .
