Description

Microsoft Azure has evolved into a full-featured cloud service provider that does so much more than just host your servers. There are dozens of technologies at the user's disposal for crafting a resilient high-performance cloud application. Whether you wish to master these technologies for the sake of passing the new 70-535 Azure certification exam or you just want to get a better handle on the Azure services, this course will take you on a journey into some of the most vital Azure components for infrastructure engineers.

As the name implies, our priority is designing for operations. Our focus here is on DevOps - monitoring, security, automation, instrumentation - and our goal is to do it all using Azure solutions. We are going to learn how to properly instrument software applications and collect metrics for analysis and alerting. We are also going to learn how to monitor Azure itself - both the individual resources in our stack and the wider platform. We will learn all about log aggregation and network security. Finally, we will dig into Azure's numerous automation paradigms.

Once you are done, you will be ready for a major section of the 70-535 exam. More importantly, you will have developed real expertise regarding Azure infrastructure. This is a short course but also a very deep one. Once you have mastered the material, you will be ready to tame any company's Azure infrastructure like a true professional. Good luck and enjoy!
