Microsoft Azure Infrastructure & Deployment (M-AZ100) Course Overview

This 3-day training course will provide delegates with the foundational knowledge and skill-set to manage Azure subscriptions and cloud resources. This includes using role-based access control to grant access to Azure users, groups, and services, and learning about the key monitoring tools and capabilities. Delegates will be introduced to Log Analytics to query and analyse data, and the Azure Resource Manager deployment model.

Also, this course teaches delegates how to implement Azure storage solutions for a variety of scenarios. Delegates learn about the different storage accounts and services as well as basic data replication concepts and available replication schemes. Delegates are also introduced to Storage Explorer as a convenient way to work with Azure storage data and learn the types of storage and how to work with managed and custom disks.

Learn 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

You will learn how to configure and manage Azure virtual networks (VNets). The benefits of moving an infrastructure to the cloud, removing the need to maintain expensive datacentres are an appealing proposition for many small and medium-sized companies. Regardless, once resources are moved to Azure, they require the same networking functionality as an on-premises deployment, and this course deals with the basic network configuration tasks.

Understand how to use Azure Active Directory (AD) to provide employees and customers with a multi-tenant cloud-based directory and identity management system. Delegates will learn the differences between Azure AD and Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), as well the differences in functionality offered by the different editions of Azure AD. Delegates will also learn how to configure self-service password reset, or to use the option of password writes back to reset user passwords regardless of their location. Delegates are then introduced to Azure AD Identity Protection and learn how they can use it to protect their organisations from compromised accounts, identity attacks, and configuration issues. Students also learn how to integrate Azure AD with the many Software as a Service (SaaS) applications that are used, in order to secure user access to those applications.

Who should attend this course?

This course is for Azure Administrators. Azure Administrators manage the cloud services that span storage, networking and compute cloud capabilities, with a deep understanding of each service across the full IT lifecycle. This role requires communicating and coordinating with vendors. Azure Administrators use the Azure Portal and as they become more proficient they use PowerShell and the Command Line Interface.

Prerequisites

There are no formal prerequisites for this course, but previous experience with operating systems, virtualisation, cloud infrastructure, storage structures, and networking will be beneficial. 

 

Microsoft Azure Integration & Security (M-AZ101) Course Overview

Delegates will also learn how to use Azure Site Recovery for performing the actual migration of workloads to Azure. The course focuses primarily on using ASR on a Hyper-V infrastructure to prepare and complete the migration process. In addition, delegates learn about other scenarios, such as migration of VMware vSphere Hypervisor virtual machines and System Centre VMM Hyper-V machines.

This course teaches IT Professionals how to manage and maintain the infrastructure for the core web apps and services that developers build and deploy. Delegates will learn how Azure App Service is used as a Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering for deploying cloud apps for web and mobile environments. Delegates will also learn how to use App Service Environments (ASE) to host a dedicated environment for securing and running App Service apps at scale. Students will also learn how to use deployment slots as staging environments for web apps, that can then be swapped into production when needed.

This three-day course teaches IT Professionals how to implement and configure different Azure networking traffic distribution mechanisms, including Azure Load Balancer, Azure Traffic Manager, and Azure Application Gateway. Delegates will also learn how to implement site connectivity for multiple scenarios including cross-premises and hybrid configurations, as well as extending on-premises networks into the Microsoft cloud over a dedicated private connection, using Azure ExpressRoute. Lastly, delegates will learn how to use Network Watcher to monitor and troubleshoot Azure virtual networks. They will also learn how to troubleshoot and remediate common errors in Azure Application Gateway and Azure Load Balancer.

Understand the challenges that organisations face in keeping modern IT environments secure, as the more distributed environments that are part of a cloud-first or hybrid world have rapidly created new security challenges for IT. The course focuses on three key areas in the defence against attackers who target security vulnerabilities, resulting particularly from credential theft and compromised identities: Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), and Azure Active Directory Privileged Identity Management (PIM).
