Description

Architecting network solutions in the cloud is a huge challenge for architects and network administrators. In this course, Design a Networking Strategy for Microsoft Azure, you will gain the ability to identify the optimal cloud networking solutions, ensure security and resiliency for networking and their dependent services, and integrate with external networks to enable a hybrid cloud environment. First, you will learn the capabilities of Azure Virtual Networks and how to utilize them. Next, you will discover how to add resiliency services through load balancing technologies. Finally, you will explore how to integrate Azure services with on-premises services using a number of different networking connectivity solutions. When you’re finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of Azure networking needed to fully leverage Azure services and integrate with other networks.

Course Overview
Hi, my name is John Savill, and welcome to my course, Design a Networking Strategy for Microsoft Azure. I'm a principal technical architect at Dallas Microsoft Technology Center. Networking is a critical component for any solution to ensure the performance, resilience, and security which is only magnified when considering hybrid environments. Knowing the Options and capabilities is critical to ensure the optimal architecture. In this course, we're going to look at the key Azure networking technologies along with their benefits and architectural considerations. By the end of this course, you'll know how to architect and implement networking solutions in Azure, and how to make Azure part of your hybrid cloud journey. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Azure networking with the Design a Networking Strategy for Microsoft Azure course at Pluralsight.

Common Solutions
Welcome to the Design a Networking Strategy for Microsoft Azure course, and this first module, Common Solutions. My name is John Savill. I'm a principal technical architect at the Dallas Microsoft Technology Center. My Twitter handle is ntfaqguy where I try to keep my followers up to date on the latest videos, articles, and learning materials I create. You can follow me on my blog at savilltech. com. In this course, we're going to quickly review networking basics and requirements; designing and securing virtual networks; designing load balancing solutions; designing traffic routing solutions, typically between different regions; looking at connectivity solutions, I want to connect my on-premises or other networks into my Azure-based cloud solutions; how I select the right network monitoring option; and then a quick architecture review of a few case studies to really try and stress some of the core concepts which we're going to cover through this course. In this first module, we're going to look at a review of the networking basics, and then some of the common requirements and considerations, especially when we take that knowledge we have about our existing on-premises networks and now think about extending that out into leveraging the cloud.

Designing and Securing Virtual Networks
Welcome to the Designing and Securing Virtual Networks module. In this module, we're going to review the basics of a virtual network, look at expanding the connectivity of a virtual network to other virtual networks using network peering, then kind of the opposite, how I can segment and segregate subnets with network security groups and application security groups, extending the networking capabilities using network virtual appliances or NVAs, expanding the reach of a virtual network to other Azure services and controlling that access using service tags, how various PaaS services can integrate with virtual networks, and then finally, looking at the Azure Distributed Denial of Service Protection and the Azure firewall.

Designing Load Balancing Solutions
Welcome to the Designing Load Balancing Solutions module. In this module, we'll provide an introduction of public-facing IPs, why load balancing is required, looking at the Azure Load Balancer, and then the Azure Application Gateway with the Web Application Firewall.

Designing Traffic Routing Solutions
This module covers designing traffic routing solutions, and it really boils down to previously I mentioned the slowness of light. So I want to talk about the slowness of light part 2, Azure Traffic Manager and types of traffic routing.

Designing Connectivity Solutions
Welcome to the Designing Connectivity Solutions module. In this module, we're going to cover connecting virtual networks to on-premises, the site-to-site VPN solution, and ExpressRoute.

Selecting Network Monitoring Options
Welcome to the Selecting Network Monitoring Options module. In this module, we'll explore some of the network monitoring requirements, and then the various Azure solutions to meet those requirements.

Azure Service Architecture Case Study Review
Welcome to the Azure Service Architecture Case Study Review module. And really my only goal for this module is to look at two case studies, to just try and walk through some of these concepts we've covered throughout this course, just to try and put them in kind of real-world scenario.
