How to Managing Azure Cloud Services using Azure Automation?

What is Azure Automation?

Azure Automation is an Azure service for simplifying cloud management through process automation. Using Azure Automation, long-running, manual, error-prone, and frequently repeated tasks can be automated to increase reliability, efficiency, and time to value for your organization.

Azure Automation provides a highly-reliable and highly-available workflow execution engine that scales to meet your needs as your organization grows. In Azure Automation, processes can be kicked off manually, by 3rd-party systems, or at scheduled intervals so that tasks happen exactly when needed.

Lower operational overhead and free up IT / DevOps staff to focus on work that adds business value by moving your cloud management tasks to be run automatically by Azure Automation.

How can Azure Automation help manage Azure cloud services?

Azure cloud services can be managed in Azure Automation by using the PowerShell cmdlets that are available in the Azure PowerShell tools. Azure Automation has these cloud service PowerShell cmdlets available out of the box, so that you can perform all of your cloud service management tasks within the service. You can also pair these cmdlets in Azure Automation with the cmdlets for other Azure services, to automate complex tasks across Azure services and 3rd party systems.
