See why Azure resource manager is so important for anyone who uses Azure, an enabler of a key DevOps practice using infrastructure and configuration as code, and learn about how it works in this demo-heavy interview with Kevin Lam, Principal Program Manager at Microsoft. We also demo the newly released Role Based Access Control (RBAC) feature inside of Microsoft Azure.

More specifically at [06:23], we cover:

  • What is Azure Resource Manager? Resource Groups, Management Layer, RBAC, Deployment Templates
  • [10:12] Demo: PowerShell to view and download deployment templates
  • [11:28] Demo: Viewing the deployment template from the gallery
  • [12:00] Demo: Understanding some deployment template fundamentals
  • [15:04] Demo: Understanding the parameters template file
  • [16:15] Demo: Deployment of the infrastructure and application using the custom template via PowerShell
  • [17:12] Why might you use deployment templates and Azure Resource manager for provisioning over other methods like native PowerShell, Microsoft Azure Markup Language (MAML), Chef, or Puppet?
  • [17:55] Demo: Visualization of Resource groups in the new Azure Portal
  • [21:00] Demo: Assigning permissions using Role Based Access Control (RBAC)

    Azure Resource Manager looks really awesome. Can you share when we'll be able to create resources such as Azure ServiceBus, Cloud Services, etc?

    @Ryan Graham: Sorry, no timeline specifically. I know the teams are trying hard to get all of the resources under this new management model!
