Azure Deployment Environments

Quickly spin up app infrastructure environments with project-based templates

Deploy the right environment for any stage of development

Quickly spin up environments tailored to the current stage of development with project-based templates. Support collaboration and innovation on development teams with consistent environments and best practices. and encourage experimentation while maximizing security, compliance, and cost efficiency.

Templatized environments enable devs to deploy from a custom portal, the CLI, or continuous integration pipelines

Standardized templates make it easy to promote InnerSource and share best practices, tips, and tricks across teams

Environment types preconfigured by admins limit dev control over environments based on the current stage of development

Comprehensive management capabilities help organizations track Azure resources across dev centers and projects

Minimize configuration effort

Deploy the right environment at the right time without worrying about backend processes. Tailor environments to specific projects with a template catalog and choose a deployment environment option based on your organization’s identities and Azure subscriptions. Deploy directly from where you work—including the code repository, the CLI, or a custom portal.

Maximize security with centralized control

Configure unique permissions to ramp up protections for pre-production and production environments, and support experimentation in dev/test and sandbox environments. Track resource usage across teams to avoid unnecessary risks or charges.

Remove barriers to collaboration

Support innovation and collaboration through standardized environments. Streamline cross-team workflows by ensuring that dev teams are always working in the same environment while allowing iteration and sharing of best practices. Deploy environments from templates defined by development stage as part of a continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline or deploy on-demand and sandboxes to work on proof of concepts.

Comprehensive security and compliance, built in
