Microsoft: Getting Started With Microsoft Azure PowerShell
Editor’s note: The following post was written by Cloud and Datacenter Management MVP Timothy Warner as part of our Technical Tuesday series. Daron Yondem of the MVP Award Blog Technical Committee served as the technical reviewer for this piece.
Azure Resource Manager (ARM) is an enormous collection of services, all of which are undergirded by a consistent Representational State Transfer (REST) application programming interface (API).
You can access the ARM API in a number of different ways, including:
- Azure Portal
- Azure Command Line Interface (CLI) v2.0
- Azure software development kits (SDKs)
- Azure command-line tools (AzCopy.exe, AzureStorageEmulator.exe, and so on)
As you would logically expect, the ARM PowerShell cmdlets give Azure administrators and developers a familiar control surface over all Azure services. Today you’ll learn how to install and use the Azure PowerShell commands quickly and easily. Let’s get started!
NOTE: Azure has two fundamental APIs: ARM and Azure Service Management (ASM), which is also called the “Classic” deployment model. This article focuses exclusively on ARM because Classic deployment and its associated Azure PowerShell Service Management module are in maintenance mode and should not be used for new deployments except when absolutely necessary.
