Azure Blueprints allow the IT professional to orchestrate the deployment of resource templates and other Azure artifacts, including role assignments, policy assignments, resource groups and resource manager templates. Objects are replicated to multiple Azure regions to provide both highly available and low-latency access to those objects, regardless of where the Azure Blueprints objects are deployed. This document contains instructions on the basics of getting started with Azure Blueprints using both Powershell and the Azure Portal. Advanced topics such as managing Blueprints as Code, configuring a Blueprint Operator and using the RESTI API to deploy Blueprints are outside of the scope of this document. This lab will provide instructions on creating a storage account and a Windows VM using ARM templates as part of the blueprint.
