This course covers the deployment and management objectives for Azure virtual machines in the 70-532 Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions exam. In Create and Manage Virtual Machines on Microsoft Azure, you will first learn how to deploy virtual machines, configure networking, and implement virtual machine scale sets. Next, you will learn how to monitor Azure VM's. Finally, you will implement high availability for applications using Azure virtual machines. So whether you're looking to pick up the 70-532 certification, or you just want to pick up new skills for the real-world, this course will get you up and running quickly with Azure Resource Manager virtual machines.
Course Overview Hey everyone, this is Mike Pfeiffer and welcome to this course on creating and managing Azure Resource Manager virtual machines. This is the first course in a new learning path for the latest version of the 70-532 certification exam and that's the Developer Microsoft Azure Solutions certification. But even if you're looking to get certified, this course will teach you the fundamentals of working with virtual machines in Azure. In this course we'll start off by taking a quick look at the requirements and the benefits to the 532 certification and then we'll dive right into the deployment and management of virtual machines in Azure portal. So you'll learn how to create Windows and Linux based servers and we'll explore virtual machine dependencies that you need to think about, like storage and virtual disks. Next, we'll move on to configuration management, automation and debugging applications running on Azure virtual machines. Now we have a lot of cool stuff to explore in this section like automating deployments with the Azure CLI and with PowerShell and you'll even see how to use virtual machine extensions to perform configuration management and automation tasks on servers using PowerShell DSE. Throughout the rest of the course we'll dive into virtual networking in Azure, we'll take a look at creating virtual machine scale sets so you can build intelligent applications that expand and contract based on rules that you define and we'll also spend some time exploring the important concept of monitoring the health and performance of your virtual machines. In the final module we'll wrap up the course by building a basic load balanced web application built using the patterns and best practices recommended by Microsoft for high availability. So whether you're looking to pick up the 70-532 certification or you just want to pick up new skills or the real world, this course will get you up and running quickly with Azure Resource Manager virtual machines.
