Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions M20535

Duration: 
5 days
Codes: 
M20535

Overview

This course is intended for architects who have experience building infrastructure and applications on the Microsoft Azure platform. Students should have a thorough understanding of most services offered on the Azure platform. The students typically work for organizations that have an active solution on Azure and are planning to enhance existing solutions or deploy more solutions to the Azure platform. This course also is intended for architects who want to take the Microsoft Certification exam, 70-535, Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions.

Audience

  • Exam 70-535
  • Candidates for this exam define the appropriate cloud native, cloud migration, and hybrid cloud solutions to meet the required functional, operational, and deployment requirements through the solution lifecycle. Candidates should know the features and capabilities of Azure services to be able to identify trade-offs and make decisions for designing public and hybrid cloud solutions.
  • The candidate should understand DevOps technologies, provisioning Azure resources using ARM templates, and designing highly resilient workloads running on Azure.

Course Outline

Module 1: Application Architecture Patterns in Azure

  • This module introduces and reviews common Azure patterns and architectures as prescribed by the Microsoft Patterns & Practices team. Each pattern is grouped into performance, resiliency, and scalability categories and described in the context of similar patterns within the category.
  • Lessons
  • Pattern Resources
  • Performance Patterns
  • Resiliency Patterns
  • Scalability Patterns
  • Data Patterns
  • After completing this module, students will be able to:
  • Locate and reference the Cloud Design Patterns documentation.
  • Locate and reference the Azure Architecture Center.
  • Describe various patterns pulled from the Cloud Design Patterns.

Module 2: Deploying Resources with Azure Resource Manager

  • This module establishes a basic understanding of Azure Resource Manager and the core concepts of deployments, resources, templates, resource groups, and tags. The module will dive deeply into the automated deployment of resources using ARM templates.
  • ARM Templates
  • Role-Based Access Control (RBAC)
  • Resource Policies
  • Security
  • Building Blocks
  • Lab : Getting Started with Azure Resource Manager
  • Create Resource Groups
  • Deploy an Empty Template
  • Deploy a Simple Template
  • Cleanup Subscription
  • Create a resource group.
  • Add resources to a resource group.
  • Deploy an ARM template to a resource group.
  • Filter resources using tags.
  • Author a complex deployment using the Azure Building Blocks tools.

Module 3: Building Azure IaaS-Based Server Applications

  • This module identifies workloads that are ideally deployed using Infrastructure-as-a-Service services in Azure. The module focuses on the VM Scale Sets and Virtual Machine services in Azure and how to best deploy workloads to these services using best practices and features such as Availability Sets.
  • High Availability
  • Templated Infrastructure
  • Domain-Connected Machines
  • Lab : Deploying Infrastructure Workloads to Azure
  • Deploy a Virtual Machine using PowerShell DSC
  • Deploy a Virtual Machine Scale Set using PowerShell DSC
  • Design an availability set for one or more virtual machines
  • Describe the differences between fault and update domains.
  • Author a VM Scale Set ARM template.
  • Join a virtualized machine to a domain either in Azure or on a hybrid network.

Module 4: Creating Managed Server Applications in Azure

  • This module describes services that use infrastructure but manage the infrastructure on behalf of the user instead of obfuscating the infrastructure resources. The module focuses on infrastructure-backed PaaS options such as Azure Service Fabric, Container Service, and App Service Environments. The module will explore how to deploy custom workloads to these services such as an HPC batch processing task.
  • Infrastructure-Backed Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)
  • High-Performance Compute (HPC)
  • Migration
  • Lab : Deploying Managed Server Workloads to Azure
  • Create Azure Container Service Cluster
  • Deploy Docker Image
  • Describe the differences between App Service Environments, Service Fabric and Container Service.
  • Use Azure Batch to manage an HPC workload.
  • Migrate to an Infrastructure-backed PaaS service from another IaaS service or a legacy Cloud Service.

Module 5: Authoring Serverless Applications in Azure

  • This module describes how solutions can leverage serverless application hosting services in Azure to host web applications, REST APIs, integration workflows and HPC workloads without the requirement to manage specific server resources. The module focuses on App Services-related components such as Web Apps, API Apps, Mobile Apps, Logic Apps, and Functions.
  • Azure Web App
  • Azure Functions
  • Integration
  • High Performance
  • Lab : Deploying Serverless Workloads to Azure
  • Create Web App
  • Deploy Web App Code
  • Deploy Function App and Code
  • After c

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
