V1.4 06/2017: In Azure storage section of the course, 15 new lectures and hands-on exercises has been added on Azure storage architecture, blobs, files, tables, queues, creation of stored access policies using Azure power shell, Storage monitoring, setting up retention and logging levels using client library.
Microsoft Azure is the fastest growing cloud platform in the world. This course is designed to help you to build strong foundation in Microsoft Azure. No prior Azure experience required. This course has been designed with an architectural approach.
In the first overview section of the course, I will introduce you to the breadth of Azure (theory lectures only) i.e. take you through all key azure services at high level.
Once overview is completed, we will deep dive into following layers of Azure architecture with several hands on exercises
This course contains both theory lectures ( slides are attached to download for reference) and a significant number of labs that helps you in gaining hands-on experience in key Azure services. This course help you in laying strong basic foundation in preparation of Microsoft Azure certifications 70-532, 70-533, 70-534.
Microsoft Azure is a constantly evolving platform and I will be keep close watch on Azure announcements and add new labs wherever possible.
So, start taking this course and put yourself in high demand in the world of IT and command higher salary!!!
In this lecture, i will provide a very quick overview of Cloud computing and Microsoft Azure
In this lecture, i will take you through different layers of Azure architecture and give you a quick introduction of key Azure services in those layers. Also i will discuss about lectures and hands on exercises this provides in relation to these layers.
Test your high level knowledge about Azure Services
In this lecture, I am going to take you through key building blocks of Azure storage services and how they are related to each other.
In this lecture, i will talk about Azure storage account configuration i.e. types of storage accounts, performance types and replication strategies.
In this lecture, I will take you through blobs, naming conventions, storage tiers, custom domains, scalability targets and finally files storage
In this lab, I will show all the configuration settings associated with blob storage in Azure portal and show you how to configure custom domain for blob end point. I will also discuss about Cross Origin Resource Sharing(CORS).
In this lecture, I will show you how to set permission at a container level, fetch attributes of the container and also add metadata to a container.
In this lab, I will write a program to asynchronously copy the blob from general purpose storage account to a cold tier blob storage account.
In this lecture, I will extend the program that I have written earlier to make sure asynchronous copy of blobs has been completed successfully
In this lecture, i will show you how to create a file share using azure portal and mount the same on Azure virtual machine
In this lecture, I will take you through Azure tables, partition strategy and Queues
In this lab, I will show you how to use TableBatchOperation to execute collection of insert operations as a single atomic operation.
In this lecture, i will show you how to apply filters while querying entities from Azure table and also show you how to query data in segments
In this lecture, I will show you how to query entities from the table by invoking REST APIs with OData compatible queries
In this lab, I will show you how to retrieve the messages from the queue in batches.
In this lecture, I will explain about management plane security, data plane security, storage account keys, shares access signatures, stored access policy, encryption at rest, encryption in transit and finally about cross origin resource sharing.
In this lab, i will show you how to create shared access policy and create SAS key based on that policy
In this lecture, i am going to take you through Storage analytics, Metrics and logging.
In this lab, I will you how to
In this lecture, I will show you how to setup retention and logging levels using Azure client library and I will also talk generating account level SAS programmatically.
Test your knowledge in Azure Storage Service
In this lecture, i will explain at a high level about Azure virtual networks, subnets and network security groups
