The Azure Bakery series: Resources

In this post, we’re going to add the resources for a web application with a SQL database as a backend. Let’s go through the resources.

This post is the fifth and last in ‘The Azure Bakery’ series: this part is about resources. [Click here_](https://itnext.io/the-azure-bakery-series-introduction-277be6b7cdd3?source=friends_link&sk=5a0f506c63bd47be964728d462ace005) for the introduction to the series._

Welcome back for the fifth and last layer of our cake. Today, we’ll add resources to the previous layers:

With these resources, the layers of the cake really come together, making it ready to serve!

We’ll look at the prerequisites, the resources, and the design recipe for the environment. After going through all the details, we’re going to bake the Azure cake.

Prerequisites

Before you can start baking the cake, there are some prerequisites to fulfill.

Azure tenant and user account: You need an Azure tenant, an Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) instance. This instance is the base layer of our cake. And it provides you with the ability to create an identity (user account) to connect to Azure, set-up the environment, and deploy the resources. You can find more information here.

Subscriptions: You need two subscriptions, which you use as a management and landing zone subscription. And you need owner permissions on these subscriptions to deploy the resources and delete lock.

These subscriptions can, for example, be Pay-As-You-Go subscriptions. You minimize the costs by removing the resources at the end. You can find more information here.

Azure CLI: You need the Azure command-line interface for deploying the resources. For the deployment, you use Azure Resource Manager (ARM) templates. You can find more information here.

Git: You need Git to clone the GitHub repository that includes the ARM templates. You can find more information here.

Resources

In this post, we’re going to add the resources for a web application with a SQL database as a backend. Let’s go through the resources.

App Service plan: This is the plan that includes the underlying virtual machines that host your app. All the apps associated with this plan run in the same virtual machine instances. You can find more information here.

App Service app: This is a fully managed platform for running your cloud applications. The app is associated with a plan and contains two deployment slots: staging and production. The deployment slots allow you to stage deployments and swap them into production. You can find more information here.

Azure SQL Database: This is a relational database-as-a-service based on Microsoft SQL Server. The database runs on an Azure SQL Server, which can contain multiple databases. You can find more information here.

Azure Key Vault: This is a service for storing and accessing API keys, passwords, certificates, or cryptographic keys. You can find more information here.

Azure Monitor: This is the Azure monitoring service and allows you to collect, analyze, and act on telemetry from both your cloud as the on-premises environment. You can find more information here.

Log Analytics workspace: This service supports collecting and analyzing data from, for example, Azure Monitor. You can find more information here.
