What are the differences?

Infrastructure as Code

So what is IaC, Infrastructure as Code? Standardise Infrastructure, Automate deployment and recreate, well-documented code. Exampled formats such as JSON & ARM templates.

DevOps teams will use IaC to recreate production like environments in dev cycles. Validate and Test deployments, prior to a production deployment. The end result being able to deliver a stable and repeatable environment.

Azure Resource Manager

The alternative to just running scripts. Manage your infrastructure resources in a group by templates. In addition, you apply security (RBAC) and tags, then associate costs to the group.
