Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Services

While the platform-as-a-service (PaaS) model is ideal from a cost efficiency perspective, deploying Microsoft Azure Infrastructure services (IaaS) is one of the most essential concepts, that offers the most flexibility between cloud vendors. If you're considering moving your infrastructure over to Microsoft Azure, or have even already started, then you'll need the valuable knowledge in this course to help get you on your way! This Virtual Machine-focused Microsoft Azure training course is packed with details about Virtual Network (Software-defined Networking), Load Balancers, Storage, and of course, Azure Virtual Machines themselves. We also discuss the automation of Virtual Machines using the Azure Resource Manager (ARM) PowerShell module.

Microsoft Azure Infrastructure services cover many different topics, including networking, storage, DNS, high-availability, load balancers, firewall rules, virtual machines, and much more. This course covers all of these topics at a high level, and helps you to understand how to get started deploying infrastructure services on Microsoft Azure.
