Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Tim Warner, and welcome to my course Microsoft Azure Administration for AWS Administrators. I'm a Microsoft MVP, cloud consultant, and a Pluralsight staff author. You work in Amazon Web Services and you now need to get productive in Microsoft Azure. By the end of the course, you'll be able to map all your AWS services to their Azure counterparts and you'll understand how to perform your most important AWS administrative tasks in Azure. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Azure cloud management with the Microsoft Azure Administration for AWS Administrators course at Pluralsight.

Microsoft Azure Compute
Hello there and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Tim Warner and this module is entitled Microsoft Azure Compute. I trust you already have worked with virtual machines and you understand what IaaS is. We're going to get right into the thick of things, first by looking at what's available in Azure regarding Infrastructure as a Service, which means virtual machines in the cloud. We'll then look at Platform as a Service, web applications, and then Containers as a Service or CaaS.

Microsoft Azure Service Availability
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Tim Warner. This module is entitled Service Availability. Very simply, what we're going to cover in this module is number one, understanding Azure regions for high availability and tying that to what you already know with AWS regions, and number two, we'll take a look at the Azure trust center and where you can go to read the Azure service level agreements and read what Azure's position is with regard to data sovereignty. Let's get started.

Microsoft Azure Storage
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight. Tim Warner here welcoming you to the module entitled Microsoft Azure Storage. Along with compute and network, storage forms the foundation of any cloud service regardless of whether you're using IaaS, PaaS, CaaS or any of the XaaS as a service variants. To that point, we have only two objectives in this module. I want to introduce you to Azure blob and file storage, and we'll compare those to their Amazon Web Services counterparts, and then we'll dive a bit into database storage, making sure you understand what's available and how to use it with regard to Azure database as a service. Let's get started.

Microsoft Azure Networking
Hello there and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Tim Warner and this module is entitled Microsoft Azure Networking. I ended our previous module saying that networking is one of those things that serves as a significant challenge to those who are new to Azure, however, because you already have experience in the AWS software defined networking world, I think you're better equipped to learn more faster. So let's get right to it. Our overview today begins with understanding Azure virtual networks, their purpose, behavior, and operation. The second half of this module is about virtual private networking, which opens up a whole other discussion on the hybrid cloud. As usual, there's a lot to cover, so let's get right into it. Normally if I have a for further learning reference I put it at the end of my module, but I think it's important enough, that is Azure networking is a deep and broad enough concept, to where I want to do justice to it, and we simply don't have time to do an in-depth treatment, so I want you to look up in the Pluralsight library my course called Implementing Microsoft Azure Networking, because we greatly expand upon what we cover here. I mean, in this 30 minute or so module we go pretty far. My Implementing Microsoft Azure course is almost 4 hours of content. So please make a note of that, if you would. And as usual, I put the link to this course in your exercise files.

Microsoft Azure Security and Identity
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Tim Warner and this module is entitled Microsoft Azure Identity. We have two objectives for this module, the first of which is understanding Azure subscriptions and how they're different from what you're accustomed to in Amazon Web Services. We'll then dive into identity proper, focusing on in product identity, namely Azure Active Directory, also called Azure AD. This is a really interesting subject and I think you'll learn a lot and enjoy yourself as well. So let's get started.

Microsoft Azure Management and Monitoring
Hello there and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Tim Warner and this module is called Microsoft Azure Management and Monitoring. In this module we turn our attention to checking the proverbial pulse of our Azure deployments. We'll start with control-plane monitoring, which essentially refers to auditing the who, what, when, where, why, and how of your Azure resources, and then we'll look at platform monitoring, which is where you're looking at your service and deployment behavior and performance over time. Some interesting stuff in this module. Let's get into it.
