Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Tim Warner, and welcome to my course, Getting Started with Microsoft Azure Architecture. I'm a Microsoft MVP in cloud and data center management, and a staff author with Pluralsight. Azure is Microsoft's premier public cloud offering. This course provides future recurrent cloud architects with the skills they need to develop performance scalable and secure Azure solutions for their customers. By the end of the course, you'll be up-to-speed with Microsoft's Azure best patterns and practices, and you'll be equipped to design highly available effective cloud solutions. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn cloud architecture with the Getting Started with Microsoft Azure Architecture course, at Pluralsight.

Cloud Computing Fundamentals
Hello there, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Tim Warner, and the name of this course is Getting Started with Microsoft Azure Architecture. This is the first module in the course and its title is Cloud Computing Fundamentals. We're going to accomplish three major tasks in this lesson. First, we're going to define cloud computing. I want to make sure that you and I have a compatible vocabulary on this important topic. Next, we'll review the most popular and prevalent cloud computing models and finish up by relating all of the above to the Microsoft Azure public cloud. Let's get started.

Cloud Computing Infrastructure Elements
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Tim Warner, and this module is entitled Cloud Computing Infrastructure Elements. In this module, we're going to look from the Azure architect's point of view at the three main elements in an IaaS computing solution. We have compute itself, storage, and networking, very simple, however, those three terms belie quite a bit of underlying complexity and that's the purpose of this module, to make sure that as a cloud architect you have what you need to design effective solutions for your customers. Let's get started.

The Hybrid Cloud
Hello there, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Tim Warner. This module is entitled The Hybrid Cloud. In this module, I'm going to teach you about Azure Stack, what you need as an Azure cloud architect and how it fits in to the Microsoft hybrid cloud pillars that we covered in the previous module. Let's get started.

Platform as a Service
Hello there, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Tim Warner, and this module is entitled Platform as a Service. In this module, we continue our journey through the world of the Microsoft Azure cloud architect. Here, we're going to understand the positioning of Azure App Services and the Azure public cloud product portfolio, and we'll learn how to plan solutions using Platform as a Service to design for high availability, resiliency, and scalability. We'll close the module covering what I call advanced app services features, basically, this is database connectivity and app service environments. Let's get started.

Infrastructure as a Service
Hello there, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Tim Warner, and this module is entitled Infrastructure as a Service. I have two learning goals for you today. First, we're going to review some of the architectural possibilities in the Azure Infrastructure as a Service scenario and then we'll drill in a bit deeper on designing an IaaS solution for performance, scale, and security.

Microsoft Azure Deployment Planning
Hi there, and welcome to Pluralsight. Tim Warner here welcoming you to the module entitled Microsoft Azure Deployment Planning. I have three learning objectives for you in this module. I want to make sure that you understand Azure Resource Manager. You may be thinking, Tim, I've been working with ARM for a long time, what can you show me that's new. Hang on because I want to make sure you understand the fundamentals and I know from personal experience it's possible to figure out how to do stuff without necessarily understanding of the underlying mechanics and that's one of my goals for you. We're also going to analyze ARM template deployment and deploy an end tier web application as a demo. Let's get started.
