MS 20532 – Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions
Module 2: Building Application Infrastructure in Azure
Although many Microsoft Azure services use virtual machines, sometimes your application might have a unique need where it requires a virtual machine that is completely unmanaged. Azure provides networking, backup, and virtualization services as part of its Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering. Lesson 1, Azure Virtual Machines, introduces the Virtual Machines service and describes the options that you can use for creating a virtual machine. Lesson 2, Azure Virtual Machine Workloads, provides details on the types of workloads that you can deploy to a virtual machine. Lesson 3, Migrating Azure Virtual Machine Instances, describes the options for migrating virtual machines to and from Azure. Lesson 4, Azure Virtual Networks, reviews the Microsoft Azure Virtual Network offering available in Azure. Lesson 5, Highly Available Azure Virtual Machines, reviews the options and features that must be considered when designing your Virtual Machine instances for high availability scenarios. Lesson 6, Virtual Machine Configuration Management, describes the common methods for managing and duplicating the configuration for virtual machines. Lesson 7, Customizing Azure Virtual Machine Networking, reviews the options for managing inbound and outbound connection rules for your virtual machine.
