Windows Azure Pack IaaS Resource Provider

Updated: September 17, 2014

Applies To: Windows Azure Pack for Windows Server

The IaaS resource provider for Windows Azure Pack for Windows Server provides infrastructure management through the Service Management API. This is exposed as an OData service. This service provides an API that helps with automation for both the hoster and the tenant.

The documentation related to the IaaS provider is currently in progress. Only part of the tenant IaaS service is currently documented.

Virtual Machine Roles are provided in another IaaS resource provider which is documented at VM Roles Tenant Service. The VM role capabilities of Windows Azure Pack provides a different way to manage and provision VMs, through a gallery. The VMs that are provisioned this way can be further managed through this resource provider..

Infrastructure as a Service: The tenant and hoster

The tenant generally manages their own virtual machines, network, and related objects (available with their subscription) through the Windows Azure Pack portal. However, not everything the service can offer can be managed through the portal. The Service Management API provides an OData service for the tenant (or the hoster) to automate their infrastructure and configuration. The OData service provides collections and entities related to IaaS. For more information about OData concepts, see OData Introduction.

The IaaS resource provider service is located at https://{server-name}:{auth-port}/{subscription-id}/services/systemcenter/vmm/. For more information about the service URL, see Common URL placeholders and Service Management API and Service Provider Foundation URLs.
