This course will focus on how to create and configure Azure service endpoints so that PaaS services can be made available from within your virtual network. The course will also discuss service tags, their association with service endpoints, and how to use them within the scope of your Network Security Groups and Azure Firewalls to allow/deny traffic to Azure PaaS services. The course will help to put all of this information into perspective.
- Create service endpoints
- Configure service endpoint policies
- Configure service tags
- Configure access to service endpoints
- Azure Network Engineers who will be recommending networking solutions and managing them for performance, resiliency, scale, and security
- Azure Network Engineers who will be working with solution architects, cloud administrators, security engineers, and application developers to deliver Azure solutions
- Subject matter expertise in planning, implementing, and maintaining Azure networking solutions, including hybrid networking, connectivity, routing, security, and private access to Azure services
- Azure administration skills
- Experience and knowledge of networking, hybrid connections, and network security
Hi there. Welcome to the Design and Implement Service Endpoints course here at Cloud Academy. My name's Brian Harrison, and I'll be your instructor throughout the videos of this course. Let's start with a quick introduction of both myself as well as some information about what you can expect from the content of this particular course. As I mentioned, my name is Brian Harrison, and I'm a Public Cloud Solution Architect. I've been working in the Cloud Space for more than a decade now, working primarily with both Amazon and Microsoft.
Microsoft being my specialty as I was a Cloud Solution Architect with them for about five years. Here are a number of ways that you can get in contact with me should you have any questions or just want to talk about any of the content. In addition, there is a email right there firstname.lastname@example.org that you can use to contact Cloud Academy directly if you should have any feedback questions or concerns about the course. Now, who exactly should be attending this course? First of all, it's going to be Azure Network Engineers that are going to be working with solution architects, cloud administrators, security engineers, and application developers to deliver Azure solutions.
Also, Azure Network Engineers that are going to be recommending, planning, implementing, and maintaining Azure network solutions. They are typically two different individuals within a given organization, hence why I separated them. The primary objectives of this course are going to be to talk about creating service endpoints, configuring endpoint policies, thereby allowing you to minimize the traffic to specific endpoints, configure service tags, and then leveraging service tags among other things to control the access to the individual service endpoints and the past services that are sitting behind them. Some of the prerequisites that you should be aware of before starting this course: You should be an expert Azure administrator and have expert Azure administration skills. In other words, you should be able to very quickly and easily jump in and out of the Azure portal without any problem and know exactly where you're going at all times.
Extensive experience and knowledge of networking, hybrid connections, and network security; that's going to be a base knowledge before we can even start to talk about service endpoints, so you need to have that. And then have subject matter expertise in planning, implementing, and maintaining Azure network solutions, including routing and private access. Again, if you should have any feedback for Cloud Academy, you can absolutely send them an email at email@example.com.
Now, one thing to be aware of is I will be using screenshots and data that were current at the time of the building of this course. Microsoft can make changes at any point in time with respect to updates to individual services such as service endpoints. So, when I call out things like something is in public preview today, it could be generally available by the time that you watch this and therefore the Azure portal could have changed. So, with that, let's go ahead and jump on into the content and start to talk about how to create service endpoints.
Brian has been working in the Cloud space for more than a decade as both a Cloud Architect and Cloud Engineer. He has experience building Application Development, Infrastructure, and AI-based architectures using many different OSS and Non-OSS based technologies. In addition to his work at Cloud Academy, he is always trying to educate customers about how to get started in the cloud with his many blogs and videos. He is currently working as a Lead Azure Engineer in the Public Sector space.
