DevOps Basics: Creating an Azure Website


An IT Professional’s role in the world of DevOps is becoming increasingly important.  The fluidity of application creation and implementation solely relies on the collaboration between developers and IT administrators alike for the benefit on behalf of the organization they support.

The biggest challenge IT professionals face in adopting DevOps methodology is relinquishing demands for control. Management is still very much a focus for IT professionals however one’s mindset must now focus on secure enablement without sacrificing end user productivity.  This is a tall order and for some IT professionals, a daunting task.

Lets start with “baby steps” by enabling a website on Azure.

  1. Navigate to the Azure Management Portal
     
  2. On the lower left, navigate to New > Compute > Web App
     
     Azure_Websites_001
     
  3. Enter the name of the new website to be created and select the Region closest to your location
     
    Azure_Websites_002
     
  4. Once creation is completed, provide the URL to the developers

 

Remember baby steps. Future posts will further detail how IT professionals will be able to securely enable the new created website amidst developer and end users alike. Stay tuned.
