Start course

This course provides an overview of Redis Cache and how to create a Redis Cache instance in Azure. With Redis Cache deployed in Azure, we’ll then connect an application to the cache.
Next, we’ll walk through the process of storing and retrieving data in Redis Cache. After covering Redis Cache, we’ll walk through an overview of what CDN is and what it’s used for. We’ll then develop some code for leveraging CDN. As we wrap up the course, we’ll cover the process for invalidating data in both Redis Cache and in a CDN.

Intended Audience

This course is intended for IT professionals who are interested in earning Azure certification and those who need to incorporate Redis Cache or CDN into their solutions. To get the most from this course, you should have at least a moderate understanding of what caching is and why it’s used.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this course, you should have a good understanding of what Redis Cache and CDN are and what purposes they serve. You’ll also know how to connect to each from applications and how to purge or invalidate data in both.


- [Instructor] I hope you've enjoyed learning about integrating Redis Cache and CDN on Azure. Let's review what you've learned. 

Early on in this course, you learned about Azure Cache for Redis and what it offers. You learned about several patterns where Azule Cache for Redis comes in handy and about different service tiers. After learning what Azure Cache for Redis is, you learned how to create a cache instance in Azure and how to access it. You then learned how to test, read, and write access to the cache and how to access the cache with a Python application via Visual Studio. We then moved on to the Azure Content Delivery Network or Azure CDN where you learned what it is, what it offers, and how it works. Later in the course, you learned how to add an Azure CDN to an Azure App Service web app and how to invalidate CDN content as well as Redis Cache content. 

To learn more about integrating Redis Cache and CDN on Azure, you can and should read Microsoft's published documentation. Be sure to also watch for new Microsoft Azure courses on Cloud Academy because we're always publishing new ones. Please give this course a rating and if you have any questions or comments, please let us know. As always, thanks for watching and happy learning.
