Operational Foundation for Cloud Migration or Build | Azure Landing Zones

published 4 months ago by Microsoft Mechanics

As you migrate or build new solutions in the Cloud with Azure Landing Zones, set yourself up for success with a set of reference environments that provide an operational foundation to host your workloads in Azure. Azure Landing Zones gives you the building blocks and scaffolding at the workload or organizational level to ensure any resource you build or migrate to Azure aligns with the rules and policies you set. We provision a set of Azure baseline services that you deploy as code to give you a landing zone to host your workloads. This ensures consistency across foundational services, like how you configure networking, identity, resource organization, governance policy, and operations. Matt McSpirit, Microsoft Azure’s Senior Product Manager, joins host Jeremy Chapman to give you a hands-on introduction to landing zone options from ‘Start Small and Expand’, which helps you incrementally govern your environment, to ‘Enterprise Scale’, that enables you to operationalize and construct many landing zones at scale. ► QUICK LINKS: 00:00 - Introduction 02:07 - Landing Zone options: migration, foundation blueprint, Terraform 02:44 - See Landing Zones in action 03:17 - How to get started 04:49 - How to edit blueprints 05:50 - How to add more policies or artifacts 06:34 - Publish and assign blueprints 08:26 - How it links to Azure Migrate 09:12 - Enterprise-scale Landing Zones 12:05 - Wrap Up ► Link References: To get started, check out the Azure Landing Zones documentation as part of the Cloud Adoption Framework at Additional tutorials are available on Microsoft Learn at Check out our best practice guidance at For more guidance on using Azure Migrate to move your VM and other resources into Azure, go to For Enterprise Scale Landing Zones on GitHub, visit Unfamiliar with Microsoft Mechanics?
