Description

While installing Windows Server and Server Core might not seem the most exciting of topics, you might be surprised at just how automated the process can get.

In this course, Installing Windows Server 2019, you won't just explore the Next-Next-Finish of installing a copy of Windows Server 2019. First, you'll explore the new -- and in some cases, the old -- tools and techniques for greatly automating this otherwise-manual process. Next, you'll discover the far more useful offline, command line, and PowerShell approaches. The extra tools might take a little extra time up-front, but they greatly pay off down the road. Finally, you'll prepare your own custom Windows Server images, to start your Windows Servers off just a bit further down the road towards their final configuration. By the end of this course, you'll know how to install Windows Server 2019 using the graphical interface and command line automations.

Description

Windows Server 2019 continues Microsoft’s march towards full-featured network virtualization with the Hyper-V role built into the server operating system. In this course, Implementing Windows Server 2019 Hyper-V, you will gain the ability to install, configure, and manage Hyper-V hosts and virtual machines. First, you will learn about installing the Hyper-V role, creating virtual machines, and installing operating systems into them. Next, you will discover details about configuring virtual machine settings and setting up VM storage. Finally, you will build virtual networks, from switches to network interface cards, including advanced features such as NIC teaming and VLANs. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge to deploy Hyper-V hosts and guests in a Server 2019 network and connect those systems into a functioning virtual infrastructure. This course is part of a learning path that aligns with the objectives for the Windows Server MCSA certification track.

Description

Docker containers for Windows might not today have the largest market share among all the Linux options on offer, but they are a compelling new approach in rapidly developing and deploying IT services when Windows Server is your operating system.

In this course, Implementing Docker for Windows Containers in Windows Server 2019, you'll introduce Windows containers and the Docker management system for building and running them in a single-server environment. First, you'll explore the management tasks in administering containers and container images. Next, you'll dig deep into the unique configurations required for container networking and data volumes. Finally, you'll build an application using containers that involves connecting a SQL server with an IIS web application. By the end of this course, you'll be armed with the knowledge you need to start building and deploying your own Windows Server containers.

Description

Microsoft continues to invest in improving the high availability experience in Windows Server 2019, and not just for your Hyper-V workloads. Technologies like Failover Clustering have matured significantly over the past few OS versions to create an HA solution that works -- and works well -- for many different types of workloads.

Traditional Failover Clusters, though, are not all that Microsoft brings to bear for HA in Server 2019. In this course, you'll absolutely be building one. But, next, you'll stretch that single-site cluster to a second site for disaster recovery. Then, you'll build yet another cluster atop Storage Spaces Direct to experience Microsoft's hyperconverged clustering infrastructure. Last, you'll spend a minute with an ancient and yet mature technology in Network Load Balancing. By the end of this course, you'll be skilled up with the knowledge you need to bring high availability to many of the services in your datacenter.
