This course teaches IT Professionals:
- How to manage their Azure resources, including deployment and
configuration of virtual machines, virtual networks, storage
accounts, and Azure AD that includes implementing and managing
- Learn how cloud resources are managed in Azure through user and
group accounts, and how to grant access to Azure AD users, groups,
and services using Role-based access control (RBAC).
- Learn about the different storage accounts and services as well
as basic data replication concepts and available replication
- Introduced to Storage Explorer as a convenient way to work with
Azure storage data.
- Learn the types of storage and how to work with managed and
- Azure blob storage is how Azure stores unstructured data in the
cloud, and you will work with blobs and blob containers. In
addition to blob storage, the course covers Table and Queue storage
as storage options for structured data.
- Learn how to create and deploy virtual machines in Azure, using
the Azure portal, PowerShell, and ARM templates. The course
includes instruction on deploying custom images and Linux virtual
machines. You will see how to configure the networking and storage
components of virtual machines. Deploying highly available virtual
machines is critical for planned and unplanned events, and you will
learn how to use availability sets to ensure that virtual machine
resources are available during downtime.
- Learn the monitoring tools and capabilities provided by Azure,
including Azure Alerts and Activity Log. In addition to alerts and
logs, you will be introduced to Log Analytics as an effective data
analytics solution for understanding your system status and health.
And perhaps the most exciting thing you will learn is how to use
the Azure Resource Manager deployment model to work with resources,
resource groups, and ARM templates.
- Discover, assess, plan and implement a migration of on-premises
resources and infrastructure to Azure.
- Learn how to use Azure Migrate to perform the discovery and
assessment phase that is critical to a successful migration.
Students will also learn how to use Azure Site Recovery for
performing the actual migration of workloads to Azure. The course
focuses primarily on using ASR on a Hyper-V infrastructure to
prepare and complete the migration process.
- Learn how to deploy serverless computing features like Azure
Functions, Event Grid, and Service Bus. You will learn how Azure
Multi-Factor Authentication helps safeguard access to data and
applications, helping to meet customer demand for a simple sign-in
process. Also, how to use Azure Active Directory Privileged
Identity Management to manage, control, and monitor access to Azure
resources within your organization.
- Manage and maintain the infrastructure for the core web apps
and services that developers build and deploy.
- Learn how Azure App Service is used as a Platform as a Service
(PaaS) offering for deploying cloud apps for web and mobile
- Get a glimpse of how to implement advanced networking features
like Application Gateway and how to configure load balancing. Learn
to integrate on-premises networks with Azure virtual networks and
to use Network Watcher to monitor and troubleshoot issues.
- Operations are done in parallel and asynchronously. And, how
your whole enterprise system must be resilient when failures occur,
and just as importantly, how deployments can be automated and
predictable. By using the Azure Application Architecture Guide and
Azure reference architectures as a basis, you will understand how
monitoring and telemetry are critical for gaining insight into the
- You will dive into the cloud design patterns that are
important, such as partitioning workloads where a modular
application is divided into functional units that can be integrated
into a larger application. In such cases, each module handles a
portion of the application's overall functionality and represents a
set of related concerns.
- Load balancing where the application traffic, or load, is
distributed among various endpoints by using algorithms. Load
balancers allow multiple instances of your website to be created so
they can behave in a predictable manner. In Azure, it is possible
to use virtual load balancers, which are hosted in virtual
machines, if a company requires a very specific load balancer
- Transient fault handling which helps define the primary
differences between developing applications on-premises and in the
to handle transient errors. Transient errors are errors that occur
due to temporary interruptions in the service or to excess
- Discussion of hybrid networking that provides an overview of
site-to-site connectivity, point-to-site connectivity, and the
combination of the two.
- To build Logic App solutions that integrate apps, data,
systems, and services across enterprises or organizations by
automating tasks and business processes as workflows. Logic Apps is
cloud service in Azure that simplifies how you design and create
scalable solutions for app integration, data integration, system
integration, enterprise application integration (EAI), and
business-to-business (B2B) communication, whether in the cloud, on
premises, or both.
- How Azure Service Fabric is a distributed systems platform that
makes it easy to package, deploy, and manage scalable and reliable
microservices and containers. Service Fabric also addresses the
significant challenges in developing and managing cloud native
applications. Developers and administrators can avoid complex
infrastructure problems and focus on implementing mission-critical,
demanding workloads that are scalable, reliable, and manageable.
Service Fabric represents the next-generation platform for building
and managing these enterprise-class, tier-1, cloud-scale
applications running in containers.
- See how Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) makes it simple to
deploy a managed Kubernetes cluster in Azure. AKS reduces the
complexity and operational overhead of managing Kubernetes by
offloading much of that responsibility to Azure. As a hosted
Kubernetes service, Azure handles critical tasks like health
monitoring and maintenance for you.
- Learn how to Implement authentication in applications
(certificates, Azure AD, Azure AD Connect, token-based), implement
secure data (SSL and TLS), and manage cryptographic keys in Azure
- Learn how to configure a message-based integration
architecture, develop for asynchronous processing, create apps for
autoscaling, and better understand Azure Cognitive Services
Successful Cloud Solutions Architects begin this role with
practical experience with operating systems, virtualization, cloud
infrastructure, storage structures, billing, and networking.
This class along with exam AZ-300 (and AZ-301) will prepare
students for Microsoft Certified: Azure Solutions Architect.
