Course description

Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions

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 profileThis course is intended for students 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.For the interactive component, this course offers students the opportunity to deploy Azure solutions using built-in DevOps tools such as Azure Resource Manager templates, deployments, resource groups, tags and Role-Based Access Control.This course does not require any direct experience writing application code or configuring server machines. This course focuses on the architectural comparisons between services and technical decision making needed to deploy well-designed solutions on the Azure platform.The candidates targeted by this training have intermediate experience in designing, implementing and monitoring Azure solutions. Candidates are also proficient with the tools, techniques, and approaches used to build solutions on the Azure platform.

Training Course Content

Course ContentModule 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.LessonsPattern ResourcesPerformance PatternsResiliency PatternsScalability PatternsData PatternsModule 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.LessonsARM TemplatesRole-Based Access Control (RBAC)Resource PoliciesSecurityBuilding BlocksLab : Getting Started with Azure Resource ManagerCreate Resource GroupsDeploy an Empty TemplateDeploy a Simple TemplateCleanup SubscriptionModule 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.LessonsHigh AvailabilityTemplated InfrastructureDomain-Connected MachinesLab : Deploying Infrastructure Workloads to AzureDeploy a Virtual Machine using PowerShell DSCDeploy a Virtual Machine Scale Set using PowerShell DSCCleanup SubscriptionModule 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.LessonsInfrastructure-Backed Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)High-Performance Compute (HPC)MigrationLab : Deploying Managed Server Workloads to AzureCreate Azure Container Service ClusterDeploy Docker ImageCleanup SubscriptionModule 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.LessonsAzure Web AppAzure FunctionsIntegrationHigh PerformanceLab : Deploying Serverless Workloads to AzureCreate Web AppDeploy Web App CodeDeploy Function App and CodeCleanup SubscriptionModule 6: Backing Azure Solutions with Azure Storage This module describes how many Azure services use the Azure Storage service as a backing store for other application solution in Azure. The module dives into critical considerations when using Azure Storage as a supplemental service for an all-up Azure solution.LessonsPricingBlob StorageFilesStorSimpleLab : Deploying Azure Storage to Support Other Workloads in AzureCreate Required Resources for a Virtual MachineCreate a VM With a Storage AccountCreate a VM With a Managed DiskCleanup SubscriptionModule 7: Comparing Database Options in Azure This module compares the various relational and non-relational data storage options available in Azure. Options are explored as groups such as relational databases (Azure SQL Database, MySQL, and PostgreSQL on Azure), non-relational (Azure Cosmos DB, Storage Tables), streaming (Stream Analytics) and storage (Data Factory, Data Warehouse, Data Lake).LessonsRelationalNoSQL ServicesAzure Cosmos DBData StorageData AnalysisLab : Deploying Database Instances in AzureDeploy a CosmosDB Database InstanceValidate the REST APICleanup SubscriptionModule 8: Networking Azure Application Components This module describes the various networking and connectivity options available for solutions deployed on Azure. The module explores connectivity options ranging from ad-hoc connections to long-term hybrid connectivity scenarios. The module also discusses some of the performance and security concerns related to balancing workloads across multiple compute instances, connecting on-premise infrastructure to the cloud and creating gateways for on-premise data.LessonsVNETsLoad BalancingExternal ConnectivityHybrid ConnectivityLab : Deploying Network Components for Use in Azure SolutionsCreate an ARM Template for a Linux VMDuplicate the VM ResourcesCreate a Load Balancer ResourceCleanup SubscriptionModule 9: Managing Security and Identity for Azure Solutions This module discusses both security and identity within the context of Azure. For security, this module reviews the various options for monitoring security, the options available for securing data and the options for securing application secrets. For identity, this module focuses specifically on Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) and the various features available such as Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), Managed Service Identity, Azure AD Connect, ADFS and Azure AD B2B/B2C.LessonsSecurity MonitoringData SecurityApplication Security Azure Active Directory (Azure AD)Hybrid IdentityAzure AD Application IntegrationLab : Deploying Services to Secure Secrets in AzureDeploy Key Vault using ARM TemplateDeploy Virtual Machine using Key Vault SecretCleanup SubscriptionModule 10: Integrating SaaS Services Available on the Azure Platform This module introduces multiple SaaS services available in Azure that are available for integration into existing Azure solutions. These services include Cognitive Services, Bot Service, Machine Learning and Media Services.LessonsCognitive ServicesBot ServicesMachine LearningMedia ServicesLab : Deploying Service Instances as Components of Overall Azure SolutionsDeploy Function App and Cognitive Service using ARM TemplateCleanup SubscriptionModule 11: Integrating Azure Solution Components using Messaging Services This module describes and compares the integration and messaging services available for solutions hosted on the Azure platform.
