Description

Overview

This learning path is designed to help you and your team prepare for the AZ-100 Microsoft Azure Infrastructure and Deployment exam. Even if you don't plan to take the exam, these courses and hands-on labs will help you gain a solid understanding of how to manage a variety of Azure services.

The AZ-100 and AZ-101 exams replace the older 70-533 exam, which will be retired on December 31, 2018. These two exams are part of Microsoft’s new role-based certification program. Candidates who pass both exams will earn the Microsoft Certified: Azure Administrator Associate certification.

The AZ-100 exam tests your knowledge of five subject areas and that’s how we’ve structured this learning path as well. We’ll start with managing Azure subscriptions and resources. Next, we’ll get into implementing and managing storage, including Azure Storage, Azure File Sync, and Recovery Services Vault. Then you’ll learn how to deploy and manage virtual machines running either Windows or Linux. After that, we’ll go into configuring and managing enterprise-grade virtual networks. Finally, we’ll cover how to manage identities using Azure Active Directory, which is a managed version of Microsoft’s tried and true directory software.
