Azure Resource Manager is a management layer in Azure that enables you to create, update, and delete resources in your Azure subscription in a declarative way. It provides a unified API and portal for managing all of your resources, regardless of their type or where they’re located.
With Azure Resource Manager, you can manage resources as a single unit, rather than managing individual resources separately. You can also create templates to define the deployment of your resources and consistently deploy your solution across multiple environments.
Azure Resource Manager enables you to:
- Organize your resources: You can organize your resources into logical groups, called Resource Groups, based on your needs for management, security, and billing. You can apply tags to resources to help organize them further.
- Control access: You can control access to your resources by assigning users to roles and configuring their permissions at different levels.
- Define deployments: You can define the deployment of your resources using templates, which describe the desired state of the resources and their dependencies.
- Manage deployments: You can manage your deployments with rolling updates, rollbacks, and other features.
- Monitor your resources: You can monitor your resources using metrics, logs, and alerts to ensure they’re performing as expected.
- Simplify billing: You can simplify your billing by grouping your resources into Resource Groups and using tags to identify resources for billing purposes.
Azure Resource Manager provides a powerful set of features for managing your Azure resources, improving the efficiency and effectiveness of your operations, and enabling you to focus on delivering value to your customers.
