    This example provisions a Scale Set of Linux web servers with nginx deployed, configured the auto-scaling based on CPU load, puts a Load Balancer in front of them, and gives it a public IP address.

    Prerequisites

    Running the App

    1. Create a new stack:

      $ pulumi stack init dev
      
    2. Configure the app deployment.

      $ pulumi config set azure:location westus    # any valid Azure region will do
      

      Optionally, configure the username and password for the admin user. Otherwise, they will be auto-generated.

      $ pulumi config set adminUser webmaster
      $ pulumi config set adminPassword <your-password> --secret
      

      Note that --secret ensures your password is encrypted safely.

    3. Login to Azure CLI (you will be prompted to do this during deployment if you forget this step):

      $ az login
      
    4. Restore NPM dependencies:

      $ npm install
      
    5. Run pulumi up to preview and deploy changes:

      $ pulumi up
      Previewing update:
      ...
      
      Updating:
      ...
      Resources:
          13 created
      Update duration: 2m19s
      
    6. Check the domain name of the PIP:

      $ pulumi stack output publicAddress
      dsuv3vqbgi.westeurope.cloudapp.azure.com
      $ curl http://$(pulumi stack output publicAddress)
      #nginx welcome screen HTML is returned
