Microsoft Azure is a flexible cloud infrastructure platform that gives organizations many options for infrastructure deployment. They can deploy infrastructure manually via the web interface or API, or they can take advantage of the platform’s many automation tools. Both manual and automated approaches have advantages and disadvantages.
In this white paper, we consider the pros and cons of manual deployment and automation on Azure. We look at:
- Situations where automated or manual deployment is the right choice.
- The benefits and limitations of automated and manual deployment.
- How automated deployment accelerates infrastructure availability when infrastructure needs are known in advance, but introduces additional complexity, including the need for testing.
- The services Azure makes available for automated deployment, including Azure Resource Manager (ARM) Templates and tools for working with ARM Templates.
