Microsoft Azure Automation provides a way for users to automate the manual, long-running, error-prone, and frequently repeated tasks that are commonly performed in a cloud and enterprise environment.
It saves time and increases the reliability of regular administrative tasks and even schedules them to be automatically performed at regular intervals.
Save time and lower overhead costs
Automate all of those frequent, time-consuming, and error-prone cloud management tasks. Azure Automation helps you focus on work that adds business value. By reducing errors and boosting efficiency, it also helps to lower your operational costs.
Use our PowerShell workflows or create your own
In Automation, Windows PowerShell scripts and workflows—known as runbooks—help you work smarter by handling the creation, deployment, monitoring, and maintenance of Azure resources and partner applications. The Azure Automation Runbook Gallery puts samples, utilities, and scenario runbooks at your fingertips, so that you can get up and running quickly with your automation tasks. Use the Runbook Gallery to browse and import runbooks to your Automation account without leaving the Azure portal
Integrate with the services you depend on
Automation runbooks work with the Web Apps feature of Azure App Service, Azure Virtual Machines, Azure Storage, Azure SQL Database, and other popular Azure services. Use them with any service that offers public Internet APIs. Easy-to-read dashboard charts and log records make runbooks easier to monitor.
Deliver more reliable services, faster
By efficiently handling processes that span tools, systems, and department silos, Automation lets you deliver services faster and more consistently. It’s highly reliable and you can create checkpoints to resume your workflow after unexpected errors, crashes, and network issues.
Get easier configuration management in the cloud
Author and manage PowerShell Desired State Configurations (DSC), import DSC resources, and generate DSC node configurations, all in the cloud. Use Azure Automation DSC to monitor and automatically update machine configuration across physical and virtual machines, Windows or Linux, in the cloud or on-premises.
