Course Overview Hi everyone, my name is Neil Morrisey, and welcome to my course, Microsoft Azure Services and Concepts. I'm a solutions architect, and I'm excited to teach you about the core products and platform solutions available in Azure. In this course, you're going to learn some foundational concepts about how Azure works, as well as learning about specific products that you can use to build solutions in the cloud. Some of the major topics we're going to cover include concepts in Azure like Azure data centers, regions, and Azure Resource Manager, tools for managing resources in Azure, like the Azure command‑line interface and Resource Manager templates. You'll learn about core products in Azure for compute, networking, and storage, like Azure virtual machines, virtual network gateways, and Azure storage accounts. And you learn about some of the platform solutions in Azure for solving big problems, like the Internet of Things, big data analytics, and artificial intelligence. By the end of this course, you'll understand the services and concepts portion of the AZ‑900 exam. But even if you don't intend on taking the exam, you'll have a greater understanding of how Azure works and what's available to help you design solutions. Before beginning this course, you should watch the first course in this learning path, Microsoft Azure Cloud Concepts. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about Azure with this course, Microsoft Azure Services and Concepts, here at Pluralsight.
