Azure Overview

Azure can really benefit your business by providing access to resources in the cloud and reducing costs at the same time. Azure provides high availability, backup and SLAs for your cloud-based infrastructure.

  • Cloud Computing
  • Azure Benefits
  • Software as a Service (SaaS)
  • Platform as a Service (PaaS)
  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
  • Global Azure Infrastructure
  • Azure Products Overview
  • SLA and Pricing
  • Azure Resource Manager
  • LAB: Azure Overview

Azure Management Tools

Azure can be managed with a variety of different tools. For basic tasks, the Azure portal can be used. To automate the deployment of a big part of your infrastructure, scripting and command line tools are available as well. You can use both PowerShell and the Azure CLI to manage your entire environment.

  • Azure Portal
  • Managing Azure with PowerShell
  • Managing Azure with the CLI
  • Azure Cloud Shell
  • LAB: Azure Management Tools

Azure Authoring Solutions

Another method to deploy resources in Azure is by using a declarative approach. Here, you define the required components in a file, which is then deployed to the system. Azure Resource Manager will make sure that the correct resources are created on the platform.

  • Azure Resource Manager (ARM) Templates
  • Terraform
  • Bicep
  • LAB: Azure Authoring Solutions

Managing Subscriptions

As a company you will probably end up with multiple subscriptions and lots of resources. Naming conventions and tags help you to keep everything organized. Permissions can be assigned to control access to your resources.

  • Management Groups
  • Naming and Tagging
  • Resource Locks
  • Role Based Access Control (RBAC)

Azure Storage

An Azure storage account contains all of your Azure Storage data objects: blobs, files, queues, tables, and disks. Data in your Azure storage account is durable and highly available, secure, massively scalable, and accessible from anywhere in the world over HTTPS.

  • Azure Storage Types: Blob, Tables, Queues, Files and Disks
  • Storage Accounts
  • Secure Access to Storage
  • Working with Storage
  • Azure File Sync
  • LAB: Azure Storage

Azure Networking

Virtual Networks in Azure allow you to setup communication between your VMs. Virtual Networks can be connected to one another through VNet peering.

Once VNets are connected, you will be responsible for successful name resolution. Azure DNS can be used to provide name resolution both internally and on the internet.
  • Virtual Network Overview
  • Virtual Network Design
  • VNet Peering
  • Azure DNS
  • LAB: Azure Networking

Azure Virtual Machines

With virtual machines you have access to a scalable computing infrastructure on demand when you quickly need to create new environments to fulfill the growing needs of your organization. Azure provides a set of predefined Windows and Linux operating systems in different configurations to get you started. You can also upload your own VHDs and start from there.

  • Virtual Machines Overview, Pricing and Storage

  • Network Security Groups
  • Creating VMs
  • Connect to a VM: RDP, SSH, Bastion
  • LAB: Azure Virtual Machines

Azure Advanced Networking

To control your network traffic flow, you can implement user defined routes. Protecting access to your resources can be accomplished by enabling endpoints or implementing a Firewall.

  • User Defined Networking
  • Service Endpoints
  • Private Endpoints
  • Azure Firewall
  • LAB: Azure Advanced Networking

Azure Hybrid Networking

Companies can decide to connect their on-prem network to Azure. A VPN Gateway can be deployed to connect to your on-prem network, using a site-to-site or point-to-site tunnel. If you need dedicated bandwidth, you can choose an ExpressRoute connection, giving your company a direct, private link to the Azure Datacenters.

For larger deployments, you can work with Azure Virtual WAN, a resource that allows you to manage all connections to your Azure VNet from a single interface.
  • Virtual Network Gateway
  • Site-to-Site Connections
  • Point-to-Site Connections
  • ExpressRoute
  • Azure Virtual WAN
  • Azure Virtual Network Hub

Sizing and Troubleshooting Azure VMs

Troubleshooting VMs in the cloud can be difficult, especially if something goes wrong early in the boot process. Azure offers some solutions to assist you in this process.

To improve the performance of your applications, you can implement Virtual Machine Scale Sets. A scale set contains one or more VMs that host the same application. Additional VMs can be started manually or automatically based on resource usage.
  • Boot Diagnostics
  • Serial Console
  • RDP Connection Issues
  • Run Command
  • Azure Mobile App
  • VM Scale Sets
