>> Hey everyone, and welcome back.
00:00
In this module we're talking about
00:00
Azure Resource Management and Cost Management.
00:00
In this lesson, we're going to be
00:00
talking about Resource Groups.
00:00
The learning objectives are going to be for us to
00:00
understand what Resource Groups are.
00:00
Then we want to talk about
00:00
how we can organize our Cloud resources or services,
00:00
the things that we're using an Azure.
00:00
How are we going to organize them logically?
00:00
After that, we want to understand the methods of
00:00
working across multiple Resource Groups.
00:00
Before we can dive into all this good stuff,
00:00
we need to understand what a Resource Group
00:00
is and you may have already dabbled into this
00:00
if you've been following along in the course and
00:00
pursuing the labs that have
00:00
>> been assigned to you so far.
00:00
>> Resource Groups are essentially containers that's
00:00
help us group and organize
00:00
the resources that we are going to be paying for,
00:00
the resources that we deploy and our Azure accounts.
00:00
This is a way to help organize
00:00
>> billing, manage security,
00:00
>> access control and even manage
00:00
performance across the different resources that
00:00
are going to be assigned to the Resource Group.
00:00
Couple of things you want to note,
00:00
a resource needs to be
00:00
>> assigned to every Resource Group,
00:00
>> essentially an Azure Blob,
00:00
an Azure Virtual Machine, a vNets,
00:00
a Azure function,
00:00
any of those things that you want to deploy,
00:00
depending on whatever it
00:00
is that you're trying to build on the Cloud,
00:00
they must be assigned to at least one Resource Group.
00:00
The deletion of a Resource Group will delete all that
00:00
contains resources that are
00:00
assigned to that Resource Group,
00:00
so make sure you keep that in mind.
00:00
One thing I like to always say is
00:00
to ensure that the people that have the ability to
00:00
do deletions on Resource Groups are people that are
00:00
truly senior and understand
00:00
what they're doing in the Cloud.
00:00
You don't want a newbie going in there and
00:00
making that deletion and then deleting
00:00
everything that you might have set in
00:00
a production environment or things that maybe
00:00
your development team have spent several hours working
00:00
on and now it's all gone
00:00
>> because somebody made a mistake.
00:00
>> Some ways that you can work with the organization
00:00
of grouping your resources are as follows.
00:00
You can organize your resources by type,
00:00
by departments, by role.
00:00
The way that I've seen it work best is
00:00
in dev test and production environments.
00:00
If you're testing out a proof of concept,
00:00
open up a new Resource Group and spin
00:00
up the resources that you need for that production.
00:00
Spin up the resources that you need for that proof of
00:00
concepts and keep them assigned to that resource group.
00:00
This way, if you need to get rid of and after you're
00:00
done testing and playing around with the resources,
00:00
you can just delete the resource group and blow away
00:00
all those cloud resources that were assigned.
00:00
If you need to keep terms on how spending is being
00:00
done maybe costs managements
00:00
on some production environments,
00:00
you can also do that by keeping things
00:00
organized within a particular resource group.
00:00
But you do have several options.
00:00
You can move resources in between Resource Groups,
00:00
but there's a couple of
00:00
things that you're going to want to
00:00
keep in minds when doing.
00:00
Depending on where your Resource Groups sets,
00:00
you're going to want to keep in mind some limitations
00:00
on the services that are going to be moved
00:00
or the Cloud Resource Center can have new moved
00:00
from Resource Group 1 through Resource Group 2.
00:00
You want to make sure that those resources
00:00
are available to be ran
00:00
within the destination Resource Group
00:00
versus where it's coming from.
00:00
There might be some limitations
00:00
imposed on those research groups,
00:00
so just makes sure that you check
00:00
that before moving forward.
00:00
Some examples of that would be
00:00
Azure Backup Vaults and App Service Gateways.
00:00
In addition, whenever you're moving resources,
00:00
sometimes there's going to be
00:00
some dependencies and what those are
00:00
essentially just like some many services,
00:00
some minor services that are going to be tied to
00:00
the primary cloud service.
00:00
Without those many services or
00:00
the dependencies the main
00:00
>> service doesn't work very well.
00:00
>> An example of that would be like
00:00
a storage array for a virtual machine,
00:00
you can't really run
00:00
the virtual machine without the storage erase,
00:00
you need to have that's you
00:00
can't run a computer without having a hard drive.
00:00
You need the hard drive there.
00:00
You want to make sure that you're moving
00:00
the dependencies along with
00:00
the primary resource during
00:00
a resource migration between two Resource Groups.
00:00
Everybody that about wraps up
00:00
this lecture here on Resource Groups.
00:00
What we covered are
00:00
the definition of what Resource Groups are.
00:00
We talked about grouping
00:00
resources and some ways that you can do that.
00:00
My favorite way is when it comes to access and costs.
00:00
That best, one that I've seen most commonly
00:00
used in production environments
00:00
or development environments.
00:00
But you have some options there.
00:00
You can do it by department,
00:00
you can do it based on teams.
00:00
I didn't mention this earlier,
00:00
but if you are setting up an organizational agreements,
00:00
like a large agreement with Microsoft,
00:00
they will give you discounts occasionally for
00:00
particular Resource Groups that's
00:00
you're going to be working in
00:00
or subscription, so you're going to be working.
00:00
You can spin up multiple Resource Groups within
00:00
the subscription and you can get a discount NS.
00:00
Just keep that in mind.
00:00
There are some opportunities on
00:00
how you're going to be able to benefit
00:00
with managing your resources and
00:00
different Resource Groups instead
00:00
of just using one for everything.
00:00
Then we talked about how to move
00:00
resources between various Resource Groups,
00:00
making sure that you keep in
00:00
mind that dependencies for the resources for
00:00
moving and that you're checking for
00:00
the limitations of resources that you are moving to.
00:00
and. Everyone that wraps up this lecture,
00:00
I will see you guys the next one.
