Description

In our embrace of cloud computing we've learned that anything that can fail, will. In this course, you will learn the skills you need to create highly-available, resilient cloud applications. First, you will hear about the core patterns and approaches to high availability. Next, you will dig into Azure Storage and how to configure it for maximum availability. After that, you'll see how to create a resilient data tier with Azure's many database options. Next, you'll learn what it takes to create highly-available compute in the Azure cloud. Before finishing, you'll even see how to set up resilient Azure integration services and networking between components. When you're finished, you'll have the understanding and hands-on experience needed to architect and deploy applications that stay online under almost any circumstance.

Course Overview
Hi everybody. My name is Richard Seroter. Welcome to my course, Architecting for High Availability in Microsoft Azure. I'm a senior director of Product at Pivotal and also a 10-time Microsoft MVP for Microsoft Azure. Look, downtime is expensive, and in the cloud, you can get whatever level of availability that you're willing to pay for. This course helps you make sense of the many, many Azure services and how to use and compose them in a highly available way. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include Azure storage and never losing data, Azure databases with global availability, Azure compute for modern and legacy apps, Azure integration and connecting your endpoints, and Azure networking, keeping your traffic flowing under all circumstances. By the end of this course, you'll know how to configure Azure's primary services for availability and what your responsibility is versus Microsoft's. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with application development principles and coding and at least be somewhat familiar with Microsoft Azure. I've done over a dozen courses with Pluralsight and this was one of my favorites. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about cloud resilience patterns with the Architecting for High Availability in Microsoft Azure course, here at Pluralsight.
