Azure Resource Manager
Azure Resource Manager (ARM) is the management layer at the foundation of Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform.
ARM enables the coordination of resources such as network, compute, and storage. Through ARM you can deploy, update or delete all of the resources for your solution in a single, coordinated, and automated operation saving time and resources.
Using ARM allows you to work with all of the resources in your solution as a group. You can use ARM templates to deploy different environments in a way that’s consistent, secure, and repeatable. Cloud automation and devops on Azure starts and ends with ARM.
