Description

This course explores Azure Virtual Networks, how to create them, and how to connect them. It begins with a vNet overview and you'll learn about basic Azure Virtual Network concepts and about some key best practices. We'll cover communications topics, filtering, routing, and integration, before working through a demo that shows you how to deploy a virtual network in Microsoft Azure.

After covering the basics of Azure Virtual Networks in the first half of this course, we'll use the second half to dive into VPNs, where you'll learn about site-to-site VPNs, point-to-site VPNs, ExpressRoute, and vNet peering. You'll also watch a demonstration from the Azure platform that shows you how to peer two vNets in Azure.

Transcript

Congratulations. You’ve come to the end of Getting Started with Azure Virtual Networks. Let’s review what you’ve learned.

We started things off with a vNet overview. You learned about basic Azure virtual network concepts and about some key best practices. We also covered communications topics, filtering, routing, and integration, before working through a demo that showed you how to deploy a virtual network in Microsoft Azure.

After covering the basics of azure virtual networks in the first half of this course, we used the second half to dive into VPNs, where you learned about site-to-site VPNs, point-to-site VPNs, ExpressRoute, and vNet peering. You also get to see a demo that showed you how to peer two vNets in Azure. 

At this point, you should have a good understanding of how to deploy and connect Azure virtual networks.

To learn more about Azure virtual networks, you can, and should, read Microsoft’s published documentation. You should also keep an eye out for new courses on Cloud Academy because we’re always publishing new ones. Be sure to give this course a rating, and if you have any questions or comments, please let us know. Thanks for watching and happy learning!
