How to Automate Cloud Workloads with Powershell
As organizations move their production environments from on-premises workloads to the cloud, they often want to do so while maintaining the automation processes and workflow process control that they've come to use and depend on locally in their on-premises environments. One example of this is that as organizations move to the cloud, they are looking to maintain scripting services that control the spinning up and spinning down of critical cloud workloads seamlessly or automate failover processes from their production environment into high availability zones with ease.
To address this concern, many admins are benefiting from common Powershell scripting practices that they've used for many years to capture the speed and scalability of the cloud-enabled by automating processes through Powershell scripting. Whether it's spinning up new cloud instances on the fly or automating other useful AWS cloud-based services, admins can now achieve control and automation without reinventing the wheel in the public cloud.
