Azure Without ARM

Ed Elliott gives us a few ways of deploying Azure resources without using ARM templates:

So, what are our options?

  • Create/Edit/Delete ourselves using Powershell/.Net/Python/Go/Java/Some Other SDK

  • Process something else (YAML?) into JSON

  • Generate the ARM using c#/Powershell/something else

  • 3rd party tools, (Terraform is the big daddy) / others include Sparkle Formation

To be honest, I’d probably just stick with ARM templates.
