In this combat, a new version of Azure Functions supporting PowerShell will challenge Azure Automation, a seasoned and widely adopted service for cloud infrastructure and IT process automation. Which of these two will win more rounds (where we will look at them from various perspectives)? Will this new “”kid in the block”” win hearts of IT Pros and cloud engineers or will they prefer to stick with its battle-tested rival?
The session is targeting **IT professionals, cloud engineers, and DevOps teams**. We will compare the two services from various aspects like:
– CVS integration,
– remote debugging,
– configuration management,
– code authoring and version management,
– integration with other Azure services, your corporate network, or even external (SaaS) services,
– pricing models,
– support for infrastructure-as-code,
– life-cycle management,
– and secrets management.
The comparison will be done using scenarios, where we will look at different architecture options and practical implementation.
The final part of the talk will demonstrate a complex scenario, where we will design, code, deploy, and manage a solution for automating an IT process using Azure Functions.”
