Step by Step Azure Resource Manager (ARM) Templates - Index@20aman Oct 21, 2016
ARM Templates can be used for the deployment of resources on both Azure and Azure Stack. Using these templates for all deployments provides you with various benefits including:
- Declarative Deployment – All you need to do is declare what you need to deploy. You don't need to create any complex rules or write lengthy scripts.
- Idempotency – You can deploy the same template over and over again without affecting the current resources.
- Predictability - Using Templates you can have accurate predictability when performing large deployments. You reduce any manual errors.
- Repitition without Errors - You can deploy the same infrastructure over and over again (e.g. in Dev-test environments and then in production).
