Azure Data Storage Security Options
Good day and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Orin Thomas and this is the Azure Data Storage Security Options module of the Design and Application Storage and Data Access Strategy course. Now this particular module deals with part of the design data storage objective of the architecting Microsoft Azure solutions exam and as I'm sure you're aware by now, this course is one of six that deal with the Architecting Azure Solutions 70-534 exam. This is the third course in the series. And you can see all of the other courses listed on this slide. Now as I always say in these courses, remember that Azure is a moving target. The technology is changing on an almost daily basis and the way that you do things at the time when you're watching this course may be different to the way that things are done when I'm recording this course. So what I'm telling is accurate for when I'm recording it, but do make sure that you check the documentation and that you actually go into the Azure portal where appropriate and do as much of this stuff as you can. Anyway, in this module we're talking about Azure SQL Security. We'll talk about Azure Container Security. We'll talk about Shared Access Signatures, and we'll talk about Stored Access Policies. Let's get into it.

Create and Consume Azure Mobile Services
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Orin Thomas and in this module we're going to look at creating and consuming Azure Mobile Services. This module deals with part of the design applications that use mobile services objective of the design an application and data access strategy objective domain. As I'm sure you're aware, this course in its entirety deals with the Design and Application Storage and Data Access Strategy objective domain and there's six courses in this sequence, each of which deals with a separate objective domain of the Architecting Azure Solutions 70-534 exam. As I remind you all the time, remember that Azure is a moving target. What that means is that what I'm telling you now might not be the way that it's done when you're actually watching this course, so what you need to do as part of your studies for the 534 exam is ensure that you actually check what Azure is and look for the most up-to-date documentation possible. Anyway, in this module we're going to talk about Azure Mobile Services, we'll talk about creating Mobile Services, we'll talk about consuming Mobile Services from cross platform clients, and we'll talk about integrating offline synchronization. Let's get into it.

Secure Azure Mobile Services
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Orin Thomas and in this module we're looking at securing Azure Mobile Services. This modules deals with part of the Design applications that uses Mobile Services objective, which is part of the Design an application storage and data access strategy objective domain. As you've no doubt worked out by now, there are six courses that I've put together that deal with the Architecting Azure Solutions 70-534 exam. Each courses deals with a separate objective domain. The third course deals with the Design an Application Storage and Data Access Strategy objective domain and for the most part each module deals with objectives from within those objective domains. Anyway, as I warn you every time, remember that Azure is a moving target, everything that I am telling you is accurate for the time at which I am recording this course, but things in Azure change very rapidly. You will need, when you're studying for this exam, to make sure that you're up-to-date with everything. So I suggest that you keep an eye on things like ignite sessions that talk about new technology and relevant product team blogs and documentation to make sure that you're fairly up-to-date with Azure. Now it is important also to point out that the exam writers aren't as quick as Azure, so it's also quite possible that there might be a lag between what Azure does in real life and what it does in the exam. It's really up to you to know what both are so that when you confront it in the exam you go, oh well this is what Azure did 6 months ago or a year ago, that's how I'll answer it now, even though I know that there's a brand new spanking awesome technology in Azure that would be a better way to do this today. Anyway, in this module we're going to talk about Mobile Services authorization, we're going to talk about securing Mobile Services with Azure Active Directory, and we're going to talk about extending Mobile Services using custom code. Let's get into it.

Azure Application Notifications
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Orin Thomas and in this module we're looking at Azure Application Notifications. This module deals with a design applications that uses notifications objectives of the design an application storage and data access strategy objective domain. As I'm sure you're aware, this course is one of six that deals with the Architecting Azure Solutions 70-534 exam. This is the third course, which deals with the Design an Application Storage and Data Access Strategy objective domain. If you want other objective domain coverages, you'll need to look at the other courses in this series. As I remind you with every module, remember that Azure is a moving target. What this means is that what I'm telling you is accurate at the time I'm telling it to you, but that things with Azure change, new features come out, and what you'll need to do when you're studying for this particular exam is to keep an eye on new announcements in Azure and to really go into Azure itself and play around with the technologies to see how they work. Anyway, in this module, we'll look at push notifications in Azure Mobile Services, we'll look at sending push notifications, and we'll talk about Azure Notification Hubs. Let's get into it.

Azure App Service Apps
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Orin Thomas and in this module we're going to look at Azure App Service Apps. This module deals with the design applications that use a web API objective of the design and application storage and data access strategy objective domain. In fact, that's what this entire course deals with, the design and application storage and data access strategy objective domain. An there's six courses in this series that deal with all of the objective domains in the Architecting Azure Solutions 70-534 exam. As I always remind you, remember that Azure is a moving target. This is especially true with this module, which deals with names for things and concepts that in the objectives as written at the time that I am recording this course don't necessarily reflect how Azure is, and I'll go into that a little more as we get into the module. Anyway, what I do want to remind you is that you do need to check how Azure looks at the time that you're about to take the exam, also go back and check the objectives. What I'm doing is right for the time at which I'm doing it, but Azure is such a quick moving target that things might have changed by the time that you're trying to take this exam and by the time that you're consuming this course. Anyway, in this module we're going to look at Azure App Service, we're going to look at scaling web apps, we're going to look at WebJobs, and we're going to look at securing web apps using Azure Active Directory. Let's get into it.

Service Bus Relay, BizTalk Hybrid Connections, and Azure Hybrid Applications
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Orin Thomas and in this module we're going to look at Service Bus Relay, BizTalk Hybrid Connections, and Azure Hybrid Applications. This module deals with part of the design a data access strategy for hybrid applications objective of the design an application storage and data access strategy 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 70-534 exam. Now as I remind you in all modules, remember that Azure is a moving target. All of these technologies are evolving, the limitations and the configuration of these technologies changes rapidly over time, that's just the nature of Azure. So make sure that you actually check back against Azure documentation as it exists at the time that you are preparing for the exam rather than just sort of taking my owrd for it, assuming that everything I say in January 2016 or February 2016 is actually going to be true for all time. In this module we're going to look at Hybrid Applications, we're going to look at Service Bus Relay, and we're going to talk about BizTalk Hybrid Connections. Let's get into it (Loading).

Azure VPN Capabilities and Constraints
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Orin Thomas and in this module we'll look at Azure VPN capabilities and constraints. This module deals with part of the design a data access strategy for hybrid applications objective of the design an application storage and data access strategy objective domain of the 70-534 Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions exam. As I'm sure you're aware by now, this course is one of six that deals with the 70-534 exam. As I remind you on a regular basis, remember that Azure is a moving target. What I'm telling you is correct for now, but there is likely to be changes in future. In fact there are several facts that are very likely to change sometime in 2016 or early 2017. Anyway, in this module we'll look at Azure VPN basics, we'll talk about website VPN capabilities and we'll talk about VPN connectivity constraints. Let's get into it.

Joining Azure Virtual Machines to Cloud Services or Domains
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Orin Thomas and this is the joining Azure VMs to Cloud Services or Domains module of my design an application storage and data access strategy course. This module deals with part of the design a data access strategy for hybrid applications objective of the design an application storage and data access strategy objective domain of the 70-534 Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions course. As I'm sure you're aware by now, this course is one of six that deals with the 70-534 Architecting Azure Solutions exam. As I remind you each module, remember that Azure is a moving target and this objective is a good example of where the target may have moved since the exam objectives are written. Simply because in this module we're going to talk about cloud service and Azure AD domain join. Cloud services aren't really the way that you do it anymore and Azure AD domain join didn't exist at the time that the objective were written, but I'll talk a little more about them as we get into the course, so let's get into it.

Azure Media Solutions
Good day and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Orin Thomas and this is the Azure Media Solutions module of my design an application storage and data access strategy course. This course deals with the design a media solution objective of the Architecting a Microsoft Azure Solutions exam. This course, as I'm sure you're aware, is one of six that deals with the Architecting Azure Solutions exam. This is the third course and there will be three more after this course, assuming that you're taking them in order. Anyway, as I remind you in each module, remember that Azure is a moving target. What I'm telling you now is accurate for the time at which I am recording it. Things changes. Make sure that you actually go back and look at the Azure documentation and go and use Azure when you're preparing for the exam because the best way to prepare for any exam is actually having hands on experience rather than just listening to Pluralsight videos or reading documentation. It takes a mixture of Pluralsight videos, documentation, and hands on practice to get you ready for test day. Anyway, in this module we're going to look at media creation, media processing, media delivery, and media consumption (Loading).
