Introduction to Design an Advanced Application
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas, and this is the introductory module for my Design and Advanced Application 70-534 course. This course is one of six that deals as the Architecting Azure Solutions 70-534 exam. This is actually the fourth course in this series that I've recorded. This course deals explicitly with the Design an Advanced Application Objective domain. This objective domain is made up of the following objectives: Create compute-intensive applications, create long-running applications, select the appropriate storage option, and integrate Azure services in a solution. So what I'm going to do now in the rest of this short module is I'm going to talk about each of these objectives, and each of the objective points, and how they map to each of the modules in this course. Let's get into it.

Azure Compute Intensive Workloads
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas, and in this module we're going to look at Azure Compute Intensive Workloads. This module deals with the create compute-intensive applications objective of the Design an Advanced Application Objective domain. In fact this entire course deals with the Design an Advanced Application Objective domain. As I'm sure you're aware by now, there are six courses in this series, this is the fourth. All of these courses deal with the Architecting Azure Solutions 70-534 exam. Now as I remind you all the time, remember that Azure is a moving target. For example, in this particular module I'm covering Azure Batch, and Azure Batch only went into general availability in the last few months. Up until then, you created compute-intensive applications using a slightly different method, I'm going to cover those, but what I'm trying to get across to you is that Azure is changing all the time. You need to be aware of that, you need to keep up-to-date with Azure, and even though I'm trying to tell you everything I can to prepare you for this exam, you are going to have to do a bit of leg work yourself so that you can stay up-to-date with how the technology works. Anyway, in this module we're going to cover HPC, and we're going to cover Azure Batch. Let's get into it.

Azure Long Running Applications
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas, and in this module we're going to talk about Azure Long Running Applications. This module deals with the create long-running applications objective of the design an advanced application objective domain. This whole course deals the Design an Advanced Application Objective domain, and as I'm sure you're aware by now, this course is number 4 of 6 that deal with the Architecting Azure Solutions 70-534 exam. As I always remind you, remember that Azure is a moving target. That means that the way that you do things, and the technologies that are available for you to do things do change as time goes on. For example, in this particular module, we are looking at cloud services, and cloud services have a classic component, and they're easy to manage through the classic portal, they probably don't get as much love through the new portal. Whether or not cloud services are exactly the way that things are done in the future or becomes a new way to do things, we'll just have to wait and see. Anyway, that's how the exam objectives are written at the moment, and as I remind you, always when you're preparing for your exam, you need to not only go back and look at the objectives because they do change over time, but to go back and look a the technology because age-- that changes over time as well. Anyway, in this module we'll look at worker roles, and we'll look at the scalability of web roles and worker roles. Let's get into it.

Identify Azure Application Storage Options
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas, and in this module we're going to look at identifying Azure Application Store Options. This module deals with part of the Select an Appropriate Store oOption objective. The rest of this objective is dealt with by the next module. As I'm sure you're aware, this entire course deals with the design an advanced application objective domain. There are six courses in this sequence. All of these courses deal with a separate objective domain in the Architecting Azure Solutions 70-534 exam. If you want to prepare for the exam, you go and take all 6 courses, and then you will have prepared for, in part, the 70-534 exam. I, of course, recommend that you actually use Azure, and look at some of the technical documentation, and not just use this course as your only exam prep. Anyway, I also want to remind you that Azure is a moving target, that means that the information that I'm giving you now is right for when I'm giving it to you. However, new technologies come out, and the exam objectives do change over time. So it's pretty important that you make sure that before you go and take the exam, you go and have another look at the objective document, and you also check whether or not new technologies have come out for Azure. Anyway, in this module we're looking at cloud services storage options, we're looking at hybrid scenario storage options, and we're looking at Azure storage performance. Let's get into it.

Integrate Azure Services in a Solution
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas, and in this module we're going to look at Integrating Azure Services in a Solution. This module deals with the Integrate Azure Services in a Solution Objective of the Design an Advanced Application Objective domain. As you're probably more than aware by now, this course deals in its entirety with the Design an Advanced Application Objective domain. There are six courses in this sequence that deal with the Architecting Azure Solution exam, and this is the final module of the fourth course. As I remind you at all times, remember that Azure is a moving target. New technologies come along, and new ways of doing things come along. So keep your eye on what Azure's doing, and keep your eye on updated exam objectives. In fact, the exam objectives were updated while I was generating this course. It didn't really impact everything because I was sort of keeping up-to-date anyway, but it's important to know that these things do occur. Anyway, in this module we're going to look at machine learning, we're going to look at big data, we're going to look at media services, and we're going to look at Azure search. Let's get into it.
