Before adoption can begin, you must create a landing zone to host the workloads that you plan to build in the cloud or migrate to the cloud. The ready phase ensures that the environment is prepared for the cloud adoption plan. Before you start building and deploying solutions using Azure services, you need to prepare the environment.
To organize one’s resources, management hierarchies within the Azure platform, well-thought-out naming conventions, and resource tagging can be used. Azure provides four levels of management scope: management groups, subscriptions, resource groups, and resources. The following image shows the relationship of these levels.
Before adoption can begin, you must create a landing zone to host the workloads that you plan to build in the cloud or migrate to the cloud. A landing zone is the basic building block of any cloud adoption environment. The term landing zone refers to a logical construct capturing everything that must be true to enable the desired cloud adoption. A fully functional landing zone considers all platform resources that are required to support the customer’s adoption needs.
Infrastructure as code is a natural transition during most cloud adoption efforts. Deployment of your first landing zones in the cloud is a common starting point in moving to a code-driven environment. The following image shows a variety of options for landing zones.
