Azure Automation State Configuration (previously Azure Automation DSC), is a service provided by Azure that allows you to write, manage and compile PowerShell Desired State Configuration (DSC) configurations and assign these configurations to target virtual machines (or any server or workstation to be honest). On its own, State Configuration provides some basic configuration examples, but its true power comes form the ability for you to define your own configurations.

DNS is one of those critical systems that never gets the attention it deserves. Every organisation relies on DNS. It is critical for the smooth operation of your business and yet, it's rarely considered as important as web and email. Your customers canโ€™t find your corporate website or email servers without DNS, without DNS your business isnโ€™t online. People shouldnโ€™t be required to remember an IP address (something that's next to impossible with IPv6) just to access the corporate intranet!
