31 Days of Servers in the Cloud–Use PowerShell to create a VM in Windows Azure (Part 14 of 31)
January 14, 2013 Leave a comment
As I’m sure most of you reading this already know, PowerShell is THE tool for automation and management, and the foundation for the configuration of effectively all products from Microsoft these days, as well as many other companies. So it shouldn’t surprise you (especially if you’ve been following our ‘31 Days of Servers in the Cloud’ series) that PowerShell is also able to configure and manage resources ‘in the cloud’.
- Get a Windows Azure account (start with the free 90-day trial),
- Get the Windows Azure PowerShell tools, and
- Follow some simple instructions to set up the secured connection for Windows Azure management.
In today’s installment of our series, my friend Brian Lewis shows you how you can take PowerShell in Windows Azure to the next level, and actually use it to create Virtual Machines running in your Windows Azure cloud.
