This course will provide you with the practical knowledge and experience needed to master the Designing Web Apps section of the Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions 70-534 certification exam. In addition to full coverage of all exam topics, this session will focus on the key competencies tested by the exam. We will start by creating a Web App, and we will discuss designing and deploying web apps for scalability and performance as well as the business continuity issues of Web App design.
Welcome back. In this lesson, we'll be summarizing what we've covered throughout the course.
As a solutions architect it's important for us to understand how to design scalable apps. Which is why in our first few courses we talked about creating and designing Azure Web Apps for scalability and performance. We covered using Visual Studio to create and deploy a web app to App Service. We covered the languages that are supported for App Service. We talked about scaling apps out and up. And then, we talked about how to use Traffic Manager to make these highly available. And not just highly available, but also providing users with a lower latency for their requests.
In the next section, we talked about deployments more in depth. We covered App Service plans, deployment slots, and publishing options.
And we wrapped up the course by talking about business continuity, which included scaling Azure SQL and using elastic database pools. We also covered Azure's CDN, an edition to different storage solutions. And then we ended with ARM templates.
The next course in this series is going to cover designing a management, monitoring, and business continuity strategy, which is the sixth and final course in this six-part series.
I hope this course has been useful to you and I hope it's helped you to get ready for your 70-534 exam. If you have any questions, you can reach out to me or any of us instructors on the community forums.
Thanks for taking the time to watch this course, and good luck on the exam.
