Description

Now that you've explored the overarching architecture of Microsoft's Windows Virtual Desktop in Azure, you continue with the implementation and integration of it's major components.

In this third course out of six, Windows Virtual Desktop: Implement a WVD Infrastructure, you begin with the deployment of Host Pools and Session Hosts into your Azure subscription. Most environments, however, need more than the basic images available in the Azure Marketplace. Next, you'll continue with the creation and management processes in customizing those session host images. Then, you'll shift gears and discuss the implementation and management tasks for storage in WVD. Finally, you'll dig deeply into WVD's networking, including a look at Microsoft's recommended Hub-and-Spoke design pattern along with the implementation of Azure Firewall. When you're finished with this course, you'll have a better understanding of implementing a WVD infrastructure.

Course Overview
Hey, this is Greg Shields, and you found the third course in my learning path on the Windows Virtual Desktop topics and technologies that comprise the AZ‑140 exam. I am author evangelist and a full‑time author here at Pluralsight, and I've been working with virtual desktop technologies since the earliest introduction of virtual desktops. Now that we've explored the overarching architecture of Microsoft's Windows Virtual Desktop in Azure, we continue here in this course with the implementation and integration of its major components. In this third course out of six, we begin with the deployment of host pools and session hosts into your Azure subscription. Most environments, however, need more than just the basic images available there in the Azure marketplace. So next, we'll continue with the creation and management processes in customizing those session host images. Then, we'll shift gears and discuss the implementation and management tasks for storage in WVD. Finally, we'll dig deeply into WVD's networking, including a look at Microsoft's recommended hub and spoke design pattern, along with the implementation of Azure Firewall. If you've just been tasked with designing and/or managing a Windows Virtual Desktop environment in Microsoft Azure, this course is your next stop in brushing up on those skills for success. And then from here, you'll be ready to continue on the learning path as we manage access and security, manage user environments and apps, and monitor and maintain a WVD infrastructure. Let's get started.
