Overview

This course provides the underlying knowledge required by all individuals who will be evaluating Microsoft Azure, regardless of whether they are an administrator, developer, or database administrator. Microsoft recommend this course as providing the pre-requisite knowledge for students wishing to attend course 20532C Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions, or course 20533C Implementing Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Solutions. However, please be aware that this is not a mandatory pre-requisite and that there is also duplication of subject matter covered within the M20533 and M20532 courses. During this course, students will be introduced to the principles of cloud computing and will become familiar how these principles have been implemented in Microsoft Azure. In addition, this course will take students through the process of implementing the core Azure infrastructure, consisting of virtual networks and storage. With this foundation, students will learn how to create the most common Azure services, including Azure virtual machines (VMs), Web Apps, and SQL Databases. The course will conclude by describing features of Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) and methods of integrating it with on-premises Active Directory. Audience profile This course is intended for individuals who want to evaluate deploying, configuring, and administering services and VMs using Azure, including:

  • Developers who want to evaluate creating Azure solutions.
  • Windows Server administrators who are looking to evaluate the migration of on-premises Active Directory services and roles to the cloud.
  • IT professionals who want to evaluate the use of Azure to host web sites and mobile app back-end services.
  • Database administrators who want to evaluate the use of Azure to host SQL databases
