What is the Azure Python SDK?
The Azure Python SDK is a set of open-source code libraries that you can use to provision, manage and use Azure resources from within your Python applications, whether they reside on the cloud or on-premise.
The SDK is composed of more than 180 individual libraries. There are two distinct types of libraries in the SDK: management libraries that relate to the management plane of your infrastructure, and client libraries that relate to the data plane of your infrastructure. With management libraries, you can provision and manage your Azure resources while with the client libraries you can connect and use these resources.
When using the SDK, it is recommended that you develop your applications locally and then deploy them to the cloud. This requires you to configure your local development environment, which can include installing necessary components, such as Python and the Azure CLI, and configuring authentication to the Azure resources that you will access.
