Infrastructure Automation for Azure

Exciting news! We’re thrilled to introduce the latest enhancement to RapidCloud – our cutting-edge platform now offers comprehensive infrastructure automation for Aure with capabilities for a range of popular Azure services and resources. With an intuitive web interface, engineers can effortlessly navigate through various components, visualize landing zones, network configurations, and solution architectures, while easily setting up and deploying multiple application and workload environments with a simple click.

With the much-anticipated RapidCloud v1.7.0 release, we’re rolling out an array of foundational Azure modules that enable organizations to establish a robust Azure Landing Zone and Networking infrastructure. These modules provide the necessary building blocks for a secure and scalable Azure environment. Let’s delve into the specifics of each module:

Azure Landing Zone

The Landing Zone provides the architectural blueprint, governance framework, and security foundations that underpin all subsequent deployments and operations within Azure. By configuring management groups, policy definitions, and access controls, organizations can ensure consistent compliance, efficient resource management, and secure operations.

A well-structured landing zone not only accelerates cloud adoption but also sets the stage for scalability, reliability, and cost optimization. It acts as a strategic vantage point from which businesses can confidently navigate the complexities of cloud infrastructure, enabling them to innovate rapidly and maximize the full potential of their Azure investments.

  • Management Groups: Management groups provide a governance scope above subscriptions. You organize subscriptions into management groups; the governance conditions you apply cascade by inheritance to all associated subscriptions
  • Policy Definitions: Policy definitions describe resource compliance conditions and the effect to take if a condition is met
  • Policy Initiative Definition: A group of related policies joined logically to accomplish a common goal
  • Custom Role Subscription: Assigns a given Principal (User or Group) to a given Role
  • Resource Groups: A resource group is a container that holds related resources for an Azure solution
  • Log Analytics Monitoring Solution: Manages a Log Analytics (formally Operational Insights) Solution
  • Key Vault: Azure Key Vault is one of several key management solutions in Azure, and helps solve the following problems: Secrets Management, Key Management ,Certificate Management
  • Key Vault Access Policy: Determines whether a given security principal, namely a user, application or user group, can perform different operations on Key Vault secrets, keys, and certificates
  • Log Analytics Monitoring Workspace: Manages a Log Analytics (formally Operational Insights) Workspace

Azure Networking

Networking serves as the backbone for seamless communication and data flow between various resources and services. By designing and configuring virtual networks, subnets, firewalls, and load balancers, organizations ensure high availability, fault tolerance, and optimized performance for their applications. An efficient networking setup enables secure and controlled traffic management, protecting sensitive data and applications from potential threats.

Furthermore, a well-architected networking environment lays the foundation for scalability, enabling businesses to expand their operations without disruptions. In essence, investing in a robust Azure networking infrastructure guarantees that applications are accessible, responsive, and resilient, ultimately fostering an environment of innovation and growth

  • Network Security Group: Manages a network security group that contains a list of network security rules. Network security groups enable inbound or outbound traffic to be enabled or denied
  • Virtual network: Manages a virtual network including any configured subnets. Each subnet can optionally be configured with a security group to be associated with the subnet
  • Firewall: Manages an Azure Firewall
  • Public IP address: Manages a Public IP Address
  • DDoS Protection Plan: Manages an AzureNetwork DDoS Protection Plan
  • DNS Zone: Enables you to manage DNS zones within Azure DNS. These zones are hosted on Azure’s name servers to which you can delegate the zone from the parent domain
  • Private DNS Zone: Enables you to manage Private DNS zones within Azure DNS. These zones are hosted on Azure’s name servers
  • Route Table: Manages a Network Watcher
  • Route: Manages a Route within a Route Table
  • Subnet: Manages a subnet. Subnets represent network segments within the IP space defined by the virtual network
  • Network Watcher: Manages a Network Watcher
  • VNET Peering: Manages a virtual network peering which allows resources to access other resources in the linked virtual network
  • NSG Flow Log: Log information about IP traffic flowing through a network security group

On to the fun stuff

Once you have a proper, secure foundation, you can start configuring and deploying application resources:


Azure’s versatile storage services are at your fingertips with the Storage Module in RapidCloud. From storing unstructured data to enhancing application performance, you have the power to optimize your data management strategy

  • Storage Account: The backbone of Azure storage, RapidCloud simplifies the creation and configuration of Storage Accounts. These accounts serve as secure containers for your data, supporting various storage services like blobs, files, queues, and tables. With RapidCloud, provisioning a Storage Account becomes a streamlined process, ensuring your data is stored reliably and efficiently
  • Storage Account Blob Container: Efficiently manage and organize your data with Blob Containers
  • Storage Account File Share: Simplify file sharing and collaboration across your applications with File Shares
  • Azure Redis Cache: Elevate your application’s performance with caching capabilities powered by Azure Redis Cache


  • Storage Account File Share: Simplify file sharing and collaboration across your applications with File Shares
  • Azure Redis Cache: Elevate your application’s performance with caching capabilities powered by Azure Redis Cache

Load Balancing

  • Load Balancer: Manages a Load Balancer Resource
  • Load Balancer Rule: Manages a Load Balancer Rule


Unlock the potential of containerized applications with RapidCloud’s Containers Module. From orchestrating Kubernetes clusters to managing app environments and certificates, RapidCloud ensures your applications are efficient, scalable, and secure:

  • AKS Cluster: Easily create and manage Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) clusters, which orchestrate containerized applications and services
  • AKS Node Pool: Create and configure node pools within your AKS clusters, tailoring your infrastructure to handle specific workloads
  • App Environment: Define and set up application environments according to your specific requirements
  • App Environment Certificate: Secure your communication channels by easily configuring and managing certificates for your application environments
  • Container App: Build, package, and deploy container applications
