Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Anthony Nocentino, enterprise architect and founder of Centino Systems. Welcome to my course, Provisioning Azure Virtual Machines. Are you a systems administrator or developer that needs to create virtual machines in Azure? If you do, then this is the course for you. First, we'll start off introducing you to Microsoft Azure and the world of Azure virtual machines. Then we'll look at how to provision virtual machines using some pretty cool tools available to you like the Azure portal, Azure CLI, and PowerShell. Next, we'll look at how to build and deploy custom images in Azure so we can quickly scale up our virtual machines in our environment with our apps and their configurations. And next, even in the cloud, disk is still the fundamental unit of storage for virtual machines and we'll look at how to manage, provision, and even protect our virtual disk-based data for our VMs. And to wrap it up, we'll look at a cool way to provision and manage our test, lab, and training environments in Azure with Azure dev test labs. By the end of this course, you'll know how to provision a virtual machine in the portal and at the command line. You'll know how to create virtual disks and attach them to virtual machines. You'll know how to quickly deploy virtual machines with your apps and your configurations by using custom images, and we'll be able to very quickly build and provision lab, training, and testing environments with Azure dev test labs. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with the Windows and Linux operating systems. You should have some basic command-line knowledge and the ability to execute some PowerShell cmdlets. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to provision virtual machines in Azure with my course, Provisioning Azure Virtual Machines.
