I am looking at getting some PowerShell scripts that run on on-prem servers into Azure as serverless scripts.
Some of them are pretty lengthy, and would run for much longer than the 5 minute limit that Azure Functions have (AFAIK)…
While I could potentially split the scripts into smaller chunks, they will mostly, I suspect, go over 5 minutes.
They largely collect data from our environment, Storage & VMWare stuff, and then write it to Azure Tables and CSVs.
My questions essentially are:
- where are there any good resources for taking long running on-prem scripts and going serverless? Most Azure Function articles I can find are more about alerting you to stuff, or posting to twitter (Brandon Olin's article on that is probably the best I've read)
- Would Azure Automation be a better choice than Azure Functions.
Thanks in advance…
