When migrating to Hybrid Cloud, developing automated standards for provisioning and managing application workloads is key to accelerating the predictable deployment of new business solutions. As you begin developing scripts and workflows, being able to do so with consistency across on-premises datacenters and public cloud platforms is important to promote reusability and agility when migrating these workloads.
In today's article in our Modernizing Your Infrastructure with Hybrid Cloud series, follow along with Yung Chou and I as we walk through the steps to get started with Windows PowerShell and the Azure PowerShell module for automating both Azure Pack private clouds and Microsoft Azure public clouds via the tenant service management API. We'll provide PowerShell code snippets so that you can easily try this out in your own Hybrid Cloud, too!

When migrating to Hybrid Cloud, developing automated standards for provisioning and managing application workloads is key to accelerating the predictable deployment of new business solutions. As you begin developing scripts and workflows, being able to do so with consistency across on-premises datacenters and cloud platforms is important to promote reusability and agility when migrating these workloads.
Earlier this week in our Modernizing Your Infrastructure with Hybrid Cloud series, Yung Chou and I demonstrated the ability to leverage Windows PowerShell and the Azure PowerShell module as an easy way to get started with automation tasks for both Azure Pack private clouds and Microsoft Azure public clouds via the tenant service management REST API and PowerShell cmdlets. So that you can follow along with this step-by-step demo, I’ve included the PowerShell snippets that we used in our demo in this article ...
UPDATE: Azure Automation has been updated to support Azure Active Directory authentication to simplify the steps for getting started! As an alternative to the steps below for configuring certificate-based authentication, check out this article by Joe Levy, Program Manager on the Azure Automation team, for getting started with Azure AD with Azure Authentication.
Earlier this week, Microsoft Azure Automation was made available on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform as a public preview. This new feature allows you to automate the creation, monitoring, deployment and management of cloud resources in your Microsoft Azure subscription using a highly-available workflow execution engine. Azure Automation provides an orchestration feature set for public cloud resources that is similar to what the Service Management Automation (SMA) engine provides for on-premises private cloud resources via the Windows Azure Pack and System Center 2012 R2 Orchestrator.
Azure Automation is super-cool, because it allows us to perform automated cloud provisioning and management without needing to manually build and manage a separate set of automation servers. And … scalability and high availability of the Azure Automation engine is provided natively via the Microsoft Azure cloud platform without any extra configuration steps needed, which helps to make sure that your scheduled runbooks will always execute when needed.
In this article, I’ll step through the process of getting started with Azure Automation. Along the way, we’ll build a runbook and PowerShell workflow for performing basic automation of Microsoft Azure virtual machines.
