Transcript

Welcome to “Introduction to Azure Networking”. I’m Guy Hummel.

In this course, I’ll start with an overview of Azure Virtual Networks (or VNets), which are at the heart of Azure networking. Then I’ll go over some of the different ways to connect a VNet to other networks, including on-premises networks. Finally, I’ll explain private endpoints, which allow you to connect a virtual network to various Azure services in a private and secure manner.

To get the most from this course, you should already have some basic knowledge of Azure. If you don’t have any experience with Azure, then you can take our “Overview of Azure Services” course. You should also have some knowledge of basic networking concepts, such as IP addresses.

We’d love to get your feedback on this course, so please give it a rating when you’re finished. Thanks!
