Create Azure Web Apps
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Orin Thomas, and in this module we're looking at Create Azure Web Apps. This module deals with part of the design Azure Web Apps for scalability and performance objective of the Design Azure Web Apps objective domain of the 70-534 Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions exam. This course is one of six that deal with this particular exam. Each course represents an objective domain. This deals with the fifth objective domain. Now, as I remind you in each module, remember that Azure is a moving target. New features come into Azure all the time, and some of these are going to be relevant to objectives such as design or create a new web app. This is actually something that occurred during the creation of this course. This objective was originally called Create Azure Websites rather than Web Apps. Now, functionally not a lot of difference between the two, but there's one thing that Microsoft marketing loves to do, and it's to change terms so that they look a lot trendier than they were at the time that they came up with them. Anyway, in this module we'll look at Web Apps, VMs, and Cloud Services, we'll talk about using Visual Studio to create web apps, we'll look at debugging web apps, and we'll talk about the supported languages for web apps. Let's get into it.

Scaling Azure Web Apps
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Orin Thomas, and in this module we'll look at Scaling Azure Web Apps. This module deals with the Design Azure Web Apps for scalability and performance objective of the Design Azure Web Apps objective domain. As I'm sure you're aware by this point, this whole course deals with the Design Web Apps objective domain and is one of six objective domains that make up the Architecting Azure Solutions 70-534 exam. Of course, each objective domain is covered by a separate course, and you're in the fifth of six courses in this series. So, as I remind you with every module, remember that Azure is a moving target, and what that manes is that new technologies are coming out all the time, new technologies are entering preview, new technologies are exiting preview, so assume that at some point the exam objectives are going to be updated. Azure is constantly, constantly, constantly evolving, and that means that sometimes the way that you deal with things, such as your Web Apps objective changes, and a good example of that is where we're going to look at elastic database pools. If you will look at the MVA content around this particular exam, they don't mention that at all, and the reason they don't mention it is that elastic database pools didn't exist at that point in time when they made that recording. So remember that Azure is a moving target, and things are always changing. Anyway, in this module we'll look at scaling Web Apps, and we'll look at Scaling Azure SQL. Let's get into it.

Deploy Azure Web Apps
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Orin Thomas, and in this module we're looking at Deploying Azure Web Apps. So this module deals with the Deploy Azure Web Apps objective, of the Design Azure Web Apps objective domain, of the 70-534 Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions exam. This course is one of six that deals with the Architecting Azure Solutions exam. This is the fifth of six courses. Each course deals with a separate objective domain. As I warn you in each module, remember that Azure is a moving target. New stuff is coming out all the time. This is not like Windows Server 2016 where they release it, and then it stays fairly static before they do an update. Azure is in a process of continuous improvement. That means that there may be new features that come out that are relevant to Azure. Now they don't update the exam all that often, but if you're using Azure, or _____ an Azure architect, you need to be on top of what's going on in the Azure ecosystem. So remember it's a moving target, remember that you are always going to have to come back and check whether or not your knowledge is still the same, or if a new feature has come in and you should be using that in your future designs. Anyway, in this module we'll look at Azure Site Extensions, we'll look at Web App Deployment, we'll look at App Service Plans, and we'll look at Resource Groups. Let's get into it.

Azure Web App High Availability
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Orin Thomas, and in this module we're looking at Azure Web App High Availability. This module deals with part of the Design Azure Web Apps for scalability and performance objective of the Design Azure Web Apps objective domain. As I'm sure you're aware by now, this objective domain is the focus of this entire course. There are six courses in this series, and each focuses on a different objective domain of the Architecting Azure Solutions 70-534 exam. As I remind you all the time, remember that Azure is a moving target. New features are coming out all the time, and sometimes they change the way that we do things. In fact, in this module I'm going to be spinning up Azure Traffic Manager. Now in the first course I also did an Azure Traffic Manager demo. The difference is, in the first course I used the old console, and in this course I use the new console, simply because when I recorded the old course only 6 months ago, the new console didn't allow you to do this. Anyway, in this module we'll look at deploying Azure Web Apps to multiple regions for high availability, we'll talk about designing the data tier of your Web App, and we'll talk about configuring data replication patterns. Let's get into it.

Azure Web App Business Continuity
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Orin Thomas, and in this module we're looking at Azure Web App Business Continuity. This particular module deals with the Design Azure Web Apps for business continuity section of the Design Azure Web Apps objective domain of the 70-534 Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions exam. As I'm sure you're aware, this course is one of six that deals with the Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions exam. This is the fifth course, Design Web Apps, and there are five other courses in the series which you need to have a look at if you want to prepare to take this particular exam. The next thing I do is I always remind you that Azure is a moving target. New features are always coming out, technology is always changing, so what I'm telling you is right for right now, but may change in future. So it's incumbent upon you during your preparation for this exam, to actually check everything against what Azure is doing now, rather than what it was doing at the time I was recording this course. Anyway, in this module we'll talk about updating Web Apps with minimal downtime, we'll talk about backup and restore data, and we'll talk about designing for disaster recovery. Let's get into it.
