groups, and services through Role-based access control (RBAC).
- Discover the core monitoring tools and capabilities provided by
Azure, including Azure Alerts and Activity Log.
- Introduced to Log Analytics as a broad data analytics solution
and use this service to query and analyze operational data.
- Learn about the Azure Resource Manager deployment model, and
how to work with resources, resource groups and ARM templates.
- implement Azure storage solutions for a variety of
- Learn about the different storage accounts and services as well
as basic data replication concepts and available replication
schemes. Students are also 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 students learn how to work with blobs and blob
- Learn how to use Azure Files to work with file shares that are
accessed via the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol.
- In addition to blob storage, the course covers Table and Queue
storage as storage options for structured data.
- Learn how to secure and manage storage using Shared Access
Signatures (SAS) and Azure Backup, using Recovery Services Vault.
Next, students learn how to use Azure File Sync to centralize an
organization's file Shares in Azure Files. Content Delivery Network
(CDN) is used to store cached content on a distributed network of
servers that are close to end users. Students learn how to optimize
content delivery with Azure CDN, as well as how to transfer large
amounts of data using the Azure Import/Export service.
- Learn how to monitor Azure storage by configuring metrics and
alerts and using the Activity Log. Students learn how to analyze
usage trends, trace requests, and diagnose issues with a storage
- How to create and manage virtual machines as part of an
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) computing infrastructure.
- Learn how to assess their on-premises environment for virtual
machine readiness in preparation for moving resources to the cloud,
including sizing, pricing, and design considerations.
- 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
- Learn how to configure the networking and storage components of
- Deploying highly available virtual machines is critical in the
light of planned and unplanned events, and students learn how to
use availability sets to ensure that virtual machine resources are
available during downtime.
- Learn how to use extensions and Desired State Configuration
(DSC) for post deployment automation and configuration tasks.
- Learn how to perform virtual machine backups, and to use
Azure's monitoring capabilities to collect, view, and analyze
virtual machine diagnostic and log data.
- Configure and manage Azure virtual networks (VNets).
- The benefits of moving an infrastructure to the cloud, removing
the need to maintain expensive datacenters are an appealing
proposition for many small and medium-sized companies. Regardless,
once resources are moved to Azure, they require the same networking
functionality as an on-premises deployment, and this course deals
with the basic network configuration tasks.
- The basis of IP addressing, with specific emphasis on how
public and private IP addressing works in the cloud.
- Learn how to configure network routing and how to implement
- Securing the network infrastructure is of key importance and
students learn how to use Network Security Groups (NSGs) to limit
network traffic to resources in a virtual network, by creating
security rules that allow or deny inbound or outbound traffic.
- Learn how to use NSG logging to diagnose and troubleshoot
network connectivity problems.
- Different connectivity scenarios for Azure virtual networks and
students learn how to connect virtual networks with VNet-to-VNet
VPN gateways and virtual network peering.
- Use Azure Active Directory (AD) to provide employees and
customers with a multi-tenant cloud-based directory and identity
- Learn the differences between Azure AD and Active Directory
Domain Services (AD DS), as well the differences in functionality
offered by the different editions of Azure AD.
- Learn how to configure self-service password reset, or to use
the option of password writeback to reset user passwords regardless
of their location. Students are then introduced to Azure AD
Identity Protection and learn how they can use it to protect their
organizations from compromised accounts, identity attacks, and
- Learn how to integrate Azure AD with the many Software as a
Service (SaaS) applications that are used, in order to secure user
access to those applications.
- Concepts of Azure domains and tenants, and users and groups are
explained and students learn how to work with the various Azure AD
objects. Students are introduced to Azure role-based access control
to be able to provide a more granular access based on the principle
of least privilege. An administrator, or user, can do exactly the
task they need to accomplish; no more, no less.
- Learn how to work with Azure joined devices and Hybrid AD
joined devices, enabling their users to be productive wherever and
whenever - but ensuring that corporate assets are protected and
that devices meet security and compliance standards.
- Learn how to use Azure AD Connect to integrate their
on-premises directories with Azure AD, providing a common identity
for their users of Office 365, Azure, and SaaS applications
integrated with Azure AD.
- Learn how to use Azure AD Application Proxy to be able to
provide their users with remote access to web application that are
published on-premises, such as SharePoint sites, Outlook Web
Access, or any other line of business (LOB) applications the
This course is for Azure Administrators. Azure
Administrators manage the cloud services that span storage,
networking, and compute cloud capabilities, with a deep
understanding of each service across the full IT lifecycle. They
take end-user requests for new cloud applications and make
recommendations on services to use for optimal performance and
scale, as well as provision, size, monitor and adjust as
appropriate. This role requires communicating and coordinating with
vendors. Azure Administrators use the Azure Portal and as
they become more proficient they use PowerShell and the Command
Successful Cloud Administrators start this role with
experience on operating systems, virtualization, cloud
infrastructure, storage structures, and networking.
