Description

Organizations use site-to-site VPNs and ExpressRoute to connect on-premises networks to Azure. As an organization grows, so does the complexity of implementing and managing connectivity between the cloud and on-premises locations.

In this course, we review Azure Virtual Wide Area Network (WAN). Azure Virtual WAN creates a hub-and-spoke topology that provides a single interface for managing branch connectivity, user access, and connectivity between VNets. We also cover how Azure Virtual WAN hubs connect with other network resources to create a full mesh topology that serves as a backbone of a hybrid network.

Learning Objectives

  • Design an Azure Virtual WAN architecture
  • Understand the SKUs and related features of a Virtual WAN
  • Create a Virtual WAN hub
  • Create a network virtual appliance (NVA) in a virtual hub
  • Configure virtual hub routing
  • Understand connection units and scale units

Intended Audience

  • System or network administrators with responsibilities for connecting an on-premises network to Azure
  • Anyone preparing for the Azure AZ-700: Designing and Implementing Microsoft Azure Networking Solutions exam

Prerequisites

  • A basic understanding of networking, routing, and VPN concepts
  • An Azure subscription (sign up for a free trial at https://azure.microsoft.com/free/ if you don’t have a subscription)
Transcript

Congratulations on finishing this course, Designing and Implementing an Azure Virtual WAN Architecture. We covered a lot in this course. We started with an overview of Azure Virtual WANs and the services and SKUs or types of Virtual WANs Azure has to offer. We then went on to create a virtual WAN and HUB and connect a VNet and Site-to-Site VPN to the Virtual Hub. After that, we created an NVA and reviewed Virtual Hub Routing. Then we looked at Connection Units and Scale Units and how they work with pricing. Thank you for spending your time on this course and please don't forget to review the course now that you've finished. Your feedback is appreciated.
