Azure Automation Hybrid Worker Extension for Azure and Arc-enabled
If you remember in February we announce that we would retire the AzureRM PowerShell module. And we gave guidance on updating your scripts. Creating a new module allowed our engineers to make the design, naming of cmdlets, and modules consistent. All modules now start with the Az. prefix and cmdlets all use the Verb-AzNoun naming convention. Previously, cmdlet names were longer and inconsistent
Now, we are ready to set a date for the retirement of the AzureRM module. 29 February 2024 is the date. That gives you over 2 years to update your scripts. That should be enough time.
While the new runtime is currently in preview, you won't have to wait long to run .NET 6 function apps or PowerShell 7 scripts in production. Azure Functions 4.0 is expected to be generally available in early November.
Azure Functions are NOT just for developers. I use them regularly for may Ops related actions such as running scheduled tasks, process file uploads, and analyze IoT data streams. To name a few.
