This is a continuation of Part 1. If haven’t already read that, you should go though that before continuing further.

Resource Group (continued…)

Picking up where I left in Part 1.

  • Used for monitoring meter anad builing at Resource Group level
  • Also set up policies
  • Set up alerts (if a certain service goes above the certain threshold, it will alert you)
  • Set up Quotas (for example: set up to use only certain amount for storage.)
  • Controll access level (who can control what to a what level)
  • Delete Resource Group = Delete all service in the group
  • Each resource can only exist in one Group
  • Can be spreak across regions
  • Add / remove resources from resource group at any time
  • Delete resource from one group and add to another
  • Application can your resource from different resources groups

Azure Resource Manager

It’s a tool to manage your resource groups

  • Provides resources such as virtual disks, machines, processors, memory, networking and OSs
  • Available whenever you need it and can be ran in seconds to minutes

Virtual Machines (VM)

  • Literally computers but you access them remotely
  • Emulators of physically computers

VM Scale sets

  • Group of indentically configured VMs

App service

  • Platform as a service
  • Helps doing everything related to apps (build, deploy and manage)


  • Create resources based event in codes


  • Virtual environments
  • OS less
  • Lightweight
  • Created, scaled out and can be stopped dynamically
