This course is designed to give you real-world advice and guidance in the ever-changing world of Azure. The course was designed to highlight the areas where mistakes are often made, and we're going to use four pillars to guide you through the course. The pillars are security, performance, support, and cost. Some of the major topics we will cover include service level agreements and why they're important, auditing and reviewing network, virtual machines, storage, and backup in Azure. We'll spend some time going through the Azure Advisor and the importance of the security center. And finally, we'll discuss some of the perimeter devices and security options you have in Azure. By the end of the course, you'll know most of the mistakes I've made over the years, and I'm more than happy to share them with you. The Azure world is changing quickly, but this course will give you a core understanding and the best approaches for auditing and securing your environment. I hope you'll join me on this journey through the land of pillars, audits, security, SLAs, and random anecdotes.
