Description

The biggest trend in networking today is the move to the cloud and IT Pros must learn the new skills required for this mass migration. In this course, Deploy Azure Virtual Networks, VPNs, and Gateways, you will build a foundation of knowledge required to work with Azure virtual networks. First, you'll learn how to deploy virtual networks. Next, you'll learn how to route from one virtual network to another virtual network and route between subnets inside of a virtual network. Lastly, you'll discover how to connect your On-Premise network to an Azure virtual network. You'll work with three tools in this course: The Azure Portal, Powershell for Azure, and JSON templates. After you finish this course, you will have updated your skills from On-Premise networking to Azure networking, giving you the confidence to take your network to the cloud.

Course Overview
Hello, my name is Gary Grudzinskas, and welcome to my course, Deploy Azure Virtual Networks, VPNs, and Gateways. I have been a system engineer working in networking for over 20 years. These days, this mostly involves cloud computing. In this course, you will learn how to use Azure virtual networks. Specifically, you will build virtual networks and subnets, establish routing between virtual networks, and learn how to control traffic within a virtual network. Then, finally, you will connect your local network to an Azure virtual network. By the end of this course, you will feel confident about deploying Azure virtual networks and connecting your network to the Cloud. So please, join me on this voyage to discover how to use Azure virtual networks with Deploy Azure Virtual Networks, VPNs, and Gateways, here at Pluralsight.

Build a Simple Virtual Network
Welcome to module 1, Build a Simple Virtual Network. Here's what we're going to do. We're going to start off and build the network, VNet1, and it's going to have a subnet inside of it as well. Within that subnet, we're going to build a virtual machine, and once we have that virtual machine, we're going to take our laptop, and we're going to RDP into this virtual machine. So let's find out how to build a simple virtual network.

Connect Virtual Networks
In this module, we connect to virtual networks. This is how we're going to do it. We're going to start by building another virtual network, and we'll do this with PowerShell. And then we put in a virtual machine, assign it a static IP address, so we can learn how to do that, and then for each one of these virtual networks we put in a gateway, and then we connect those two gateways together. So let's find out how to connect two virtual networks.

Deploy Network Security Groups
In module 3 we're going to deploy network security groups. Think of them like firewalls. We're going to start off and we're going to use PowerShell to create Plaz-VM-3, and then we create a network security group associated with the BackEnd. And what this first one is going to do is just block traffic from the FrontEnd. And then with PowerShell we're going to create another network security group, and this one a little more complicated. It's going to block the internet from the BackEnd and limit the port to an SQL port coming in the from the FrontEnd. So let's find out how to deploy network security groups.

Use a Virtual Appliance and User Defined Routes
In module 4, what we're going to do is we're going to use a virtual appliance and user defined routes. The first thing we're going to do is install another subnet right in the middle of these two and call it App. And notice these green arrows. What that means is that any subnet within a virtual network, hey, they can talk to each other. So these are known as system routes. So once we install our appliance, then we install a router on that appliance, and then watch this. Watch what happens to the arrows. Our first user defined route forces any traffic from the FrontEnd to the BackEnd through the appliance, and then our second route forces everything from the BackEnd to the FrontEnd through the appliance. So let's find out how to use a virtual appliance and user defined routes.

Deploy a Point to Site VPN
In module 5 we deploy a point to site VPN. We begin by obtaining a certificate. If you have your own cert server, you don't have to do the first part. And then in one fail swoop we install VNet-3 with the gateway, and then we go back to our laptop or whatever point that you're connecting to the site from, and you connect it. So let's find out how to deploy a point to site VPN in Microsoft Azure.

Connect an On-premise Network to Azure
And in our final module we connect an on-premise network to Azure, or more precisely, a local network to an Azure virtual network. We're going to begin by using a JSON template and building out VNet4 and Plaz-VM-4 all with one template. You're going to love these templates by the way. And then, look at our Local-RRAS server. Yes, we put on a router there or remote access server in order to handle this. You might be doing this with a different type appliance. And then we build our gateways, a local gateway, and a virtual gateway, and then we connect the two. So let's find out how to connect an on-premise network to Microsoft Azure.
