Congratulations on making it all the way through this learning path. If you’re preparing to write the Microsoft AZ-100 exam, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. First, although we’ve covered all of the major topics in the exam guide, there are a few details that weren’t covered. I’ll list them for you and show you where you can learn more about them.
The Azure Import/Export service lets you import large amounts of data into either Azure Storage or Azure Files by shipping physical disks to Microsoft. You can also export data from either of those services to physical disks that are then shipped to you. Here’s a link to the product page for it.
To save you some typing, I put all of the links from this video in the transcript below.
If you don’t want to supply your own disk drives when using the Import/Export service, then you can use a Microsoft-owned Azure Data Box appliance.
One way to make your Azure Storage content available to internet users is with the Azure Content Delivery Network (CDN). This is a network with points of presence around the world so users can access your content from the nearest location.
When you enable Enterprise State Roaming in Azure Active Directory, Windows 10 users can synchronize their settings to the cloud, making it easy for them to go from one device to another.
While it’s possible for an organization to have multiple Azure AD directories, you need to keep some things in mind when managing them. Find out more at this link.
A common security problem is when users have a level of access they don’t need anymore. To find and correct these issues, you can run an access review in Azure AD.
I also recommend that you get more hands-on experience with Azure, which will help reinforce what you’ve learned.
If you have any questions or comments, please let us know.
Thanks and good luck on the exam!
