10979: Introduction to Microsoft Azure for IT Professionals 

This course provides the underlying knowledge required by all individuals who will be evaluating Microsoft Azure, whether they are administrators, developers, or database administrators. This course also provides the prerequisite knowledge for students wishing to attend Course 20532D: Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions, or Course 20533D: Implementing Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Solutions.

During this course, you will be introduced to the principles of cloud computing and will become familiar with how these principles have been implemented in Microsoft Azure. You will walk through the process of implementing the core Azure infrastructure, consisting of virtual networks and storage and learn how to create the most common Azure services, including Azure virtual machines (VMs), Web Apps, and SQL Databases. You will conclude the course by describing features of Azure AD and methods of integrating it with the on-premises Active Directory.

What you learn:

  • Cloud computing, Azure, and Azure subscriptions
  • Use Azure PowerShell, the Azure Software Development Kit (SDK), and the Azure command-line interface (CLI) to manage Azure subscriptions.
  • Create and configure virtual machines in Azure, and manage their disks
  • Create and configure an Azure virtual network
  • Create, manage, and configure cloud storage in Azure
  • Use Azure SQL Database to create, configure, and manage SQL databases
  • Create and manage Azure AD

Who should attend:

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