Save time and lower overhead costs
You can now automate all of those frequent, time-consuming and error-prone cloud management tasks. Azure Automation helps you spend more time on work that adds business value. By reducing errors and boosting efficiency, it also helps to lower your operational costs.
Use existing Windows PowerShell workflows or create your own
In Azure Automation, Windows PowerShell workflows (also known as runbooks) help you to work comfortably by handling the creation, deployment, monitoring, and maintenance of Azure resources and third-party applications. The Azure Automation Runbook Gallery puts samples, utilities, and scenario runbooks at your fingertips, so that you can get your automation tasks up and running quickly. You can use the Runbook Gallery to browse runbooks and import them to your Automation account without leaving the Azure Management Portal.
Integrate with the services that you depend on
Automation runbooks work with Websites, Virtual Machines, Storage, SQL Server, and other popular Azure services. You can use them with any service that offers public Internet APIs. Intuitive dashboard charts and log records make runbooks easier to monitor.
Faster delivery and more reliable services
Azure can effectively and automatically deal with processes that span different tools, systems and department silos, enabling you to deliver services with greater speed and consistency. It provides extremely high reliability and allows you to create checkpoints so you can restore your workflow if unexpected errors, crashes or network issues occur.
