Description

Most environments will have a mixture of Azure and on-premises resources, and providing the right networking solution can be difficult. In this course, Planning and Designing Microsoft Azure Networking Solutions, you'll learn to choose the right networking technologies based on your requirements to provide a functional, reliable, and secure solution. First, you'll delve into the core virtual network resources in Azure. Next, you'll explore the technologies to balance services before diving into technologies to connect Azure to on-premises and beyond. By the end of this course, you'll be able to architect a solution in Azure, choosing the right networking technologies to meet your requirements.

Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is John Savill, and welcome to my course, Planning and Designing Microsoft Azure Network Solutions. I'm a principal architecture at the Dallas Microsoft Technology Center. Now when utilizing Azure, and likely a hybrid environment of Azure-based and on premise-based resources, understanding network connectivity and security is critical to a productive, well-secure solution. In this course, we're going to look at key Azure network technologies that can meet all manner of requirements, and by the end of this course, you'll be able to architect and implement the networking required to deliver solutions that are highly available and secure.

Common Solutions
Welcome to the Planning and Designing Microsoft Azure Networking Solutions course, and this first module, Common Solutions. My name is John Savill. I'm a principal technical architect at the Dallas Microsoft Technology Center. I've just completed my eighth book on Microsoft technologies, Mastering Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V. I was an 11-time MVP, and I speak at a lot of the major conferences like TechEd, Ignite, Windows Connections. My goal for this course is to quickly review the basics around networking, why we need networking. And then with Azure in mind, how do I design virtual networks, why do I need to design them, what are some of the key considerations? Utilizing load balancing solutions to make sure the services we offer are always resilient, designing traffic routing solutions when I have a global footprint, so I can deliver services in a very logical way based off of my customer's location, connectivity solutions, because no solution is an island. I may have services in Azure in different regions, I may still have on-premises, how do I make them behave in a coherent fashion, how do I get a hybrid cloud solution? Then looking at monitoring the network solutions, and then reviewing a few case studies that actually show some examples of putting all this together. In this first module, we're going to cover that review of networking basics, and look at some of the common requirements and considerations.

Designing Virtual Networks
Welcome to the Designing Virtual Networks module. In this module, we're going to dive into the basics around virtual networks, what are they, what are some their attributes, how do I use them, and additionally how can I segment and actually segregate subnets, which are parts of an IP space using network security groups to control the flow of information?

Designing Load Balancing Solutions
Welcome to the Designing Load Balancing Solutions module. In this module, I want to start off with just looking at public-facing IP addresses, the ability to have an IP address that is routable from the public internet, why do I need load balancing, looking at the Azure load balancer as one solution to load balancing requirements, and also looking at the Azure Application Gateway and the web application firewall.

Designing Traffic Routing Solutions
Welcome to the Designing Traffic Routing Solutions module. In this module, I want to again look at the slowness of light, so this is part 2, again I keep picking on how slow light is. I want to look at Azure Traffic Manager as a solution for handling the fact that light is maybe not as quick as we'd like it to be, that there are delays when I have a big distance between myself and the service I want to access. And then types of traffic routing actually available.

Designing Connectivity Solutions
Welcome to the Designing Connectivity Solutions module. In this module, I want to look at actually connecting virtual networks in Azure to our on-premises locations, and I can do this through a site-to-site virtual private network, a VPN, or using ExpressRoute.

Selecting Network Monitoring Options
In this module, I want to look at Selecting the Networking Monitoring Options. Specifically, what are the requirements around network monitoring, and then what are the major Azure solutions to address 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 walk through a couple of case studies related to networking to try and stress some of the key design points.
