Azure Infrastructure as Code
With ARM templates and Bicep
Azure Infrastructure as Code teaches you to use Azure's native infrastructure as code (IaC) tools, like ARM and Bicep, to build, manage, and scale infrastructure with just a few lines of code. You'll discover ARM templates, deployment stacks, and the powerful new language Bicep. See how easy they make it to create new environments, safely make infrastructure changes, govern your resources using Azure Policy, and prevent configuration drift. Loaded with in-depth coverage of syntax and lots of illustrative examples, this hands-on guide is a must-read for anyone looking to expand their knowledge of provisioning.
Automating tasks like provisioning servers, operating systems, and storage, saves time and radically increases consistency. The Infrastructure as Code (IaC) approach brings the tools and practices of application deployment, such as Github Actions, automated testing, and pipeline-driven deployments, to infrastructure components. With Azure's native IaC tools, you can create whole new infrastructures with just a few lines of code using declarative specifications and an intuitive domain-specific language.
Azure Infrastructure as Code shows you how to manage and automate your infrastructure using Azure's IaC tools. In this practical guide, you'll discover how to set up Azure Resource Manager (ARM) templates and to script infrastructure creation using the Bicep DSL. You'll also explore advanced topics such as testing, reusing templates, and defining policies as code. You'll even build a complete CI/CD pipeline that can orchestrate a complex infrastructure deployment across multiple regions.
