In this episode of One Ops Question, Steven Murawski answers the question "What are Azure Blueprints?"
The cloud can be a scary, wide-open space. Azure Blueprints helps bring structure to your enterprise's use of Azure subscriptions with RBAC, Azure Policy, and Resource Manager Templates in a versionable artifact.
Just as a blueprint allows an engineer or an architect to sketch a project's design parameters, Azure Blueprints enables cloud architects and central information technology groups to define a repeatable set of Azure resources that implements and adheres to an organization's standards, patterns, and requirements.
Azure Blueprints makes it possible for development teams to rapidly build and stand up new environments with trust they're building within organizational compliance with a set of built-in components, such as networking, to speed up development and delivery.
Blueprints are a declarative way to orchestrate the deployment of artifacts such as:
- RBAC Access control and Role Assignments
- Azure Policy Assignments
- Azure Resource Manager templates
- Resource Groups
You can quickly learn how to create and assign blueprints, how to define common patterns to develop reusable and rapidly deployable configurations based on Azure Resource Manager templates, policy, security, and more in this tutorial, you will learn to use Azure Blueprints to do some of the common tasks related to creating, publishing, and assigning a blueprint within your organization.
