Deploying and Managing Virtual Machines Course Overview | AZ-100T03

This one-day training course teaches IT Professionals how to create and manage virtual machines as part of an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) computing infrastructure. Delegates 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.

The course will cover how to create and deploy virtual machines in Azure, using the Azure portal, PowerShell, and ARM templates. The course also includes instruction on deploying custom images and Linux virtual machines. Delegates will learn how to configure the networking and storage components of virtual machines. Deploying highly available virtual machines is critical in the light of planned and unplanned events, and delegates will learn how to use availability sets to ensure that virtual machine resources are available during downtime. Delegates also learn how to use extensions and Desired State Configuration (DSC) for post deployment automation and configuration tasks.

Finally, delegates learn how to perform virtual machine backups, and to use Azure’s monitoring capabilities to collect, view, and analyse virtual machine diagnostic, and log data.

After completing this course, delegates will be able to:

  • Explain virtual machine usage cases, storage options, pricing, operating systems, networking capabilities, and general planning considerations
  • Create Windows virtual machines in the Azure Portal, with Azure PowerShell, or using ARM Templates
  • Deploy custom server images and Linux virtual machines.
  • Configure virtual machine networking and storage options
  • Implement virtual machine high availability, scalability, and custom scripts extensions.
  • Backup, restore, and monitor virtual machines

Deploying and Managing Virtual Machines Course Outline | AZ-100T03

 

Module 1: Overview of Azure Machines

In this module, you will be introduced to Azure virtual machines. What are virtual machines and what operating systems are supported? How can you determine if your existing virtual machines can be supported in Azure? What pricing and sizing options are available?

Lessons:

  • Azure Virtual Machines Overview
  • Planning Considerations

 

Module 2: Creating Virtual Machines

In this module, you will learn how to create and configure Windows virtual machines. You will practice in the Azure portal, in Azure PowerShell, and with ARM templates.

Lessons:

  • Overview of the Virtual Machine Creation Overview
  • Creating Virtual Machines in the Azure Portal
  • Creating Virtual Machines (PowerShell)
  • Creating Virtual Machines using ARM Templates

 

Module 3: Deploying Virtual Machine Images

In this module, you will learn how to create custom virtual machines in Azure. For example, deploying a server image that is in your on-premises datacentre. You will also learn how to create and connect to Linux virtual machines.

Lessons:

  • Deploying Custom Images
  • Deploying Linux Virtual Machines

 

Module 4: Configuring Virtual Machines

In this module, you will learn about the two main configuration areas for virtual machines: networking and storage. In the networking lesson, we will cover IP addressing, network interfaces, and network security groups. In the storage lesson, we will cover virtual machine disks, managed disks, attaching/detaching disks, and uploading disks.

Lessons:

  • Overview of Virtual Machine Configuration
  • Virtual Machine Networking
  • Virtual Machine Storage

 

Module 5: Configuring Availability and Extensibility

In this module, you will learn how to keep your virtual machines highly available with update and fault domains, and availability sets. You will also learn how to use scale sets to increase and decrease the number of the virtual machines as the workload changes. Lastly, virtual machines can be extended through custom scripts and Desired State Configuration.

Lessons:

  • Virtual Machine Availability
  • Virtual Machine Scalability
  • Applying Virtual Machine Extensions

 

Module 6: Managing and Monitoring Virtual Machines

In this module, you will learn the very important tasks of backing up your virtual machines and monitoring their overall health. You will practice backing up and restoring virtual machines. You will learn about monitoring, diagnostics, and Azure Advisor.

Lessons:

  • Backup and Restore
  • Monitoring Virtual Machines
