Overview/Description

In this 14-video course, learners discuss Azure network options such as virtual networks (VNets); virtual private network (VPN) connectivity to Azure; application gateways; and content delivery networks (cdns). The course opens with a deep dive into Azure network infrastructure, focusing on which Azure network components are required and how to configure them, depending on a user’s workload needs. Learn how Azure VNets are addressed in Azure and how they can be used for the deployment of services, such as Cosmos DB and virtual machines. Next, learn how to implement VNets by using the graphical user interface (GUI), command-line interface (CLI), and PowerShell. You will learn when to use private and public IP addressing in Azure and how to implement an Azure point-to-site VPN. Finally, learn how to work with the application gateway to distribute or load balance incoming client traffic, and learn benefits of using a content delivery network. The concluding exercise asks learners to describe differences between point-to-site VPNs and site-to-site VPNs, then to use the Azure portal to create an Azure static public IP address. This is one of a series of courses to help learners prepare for the AZ-900: Azure Fundamentals certification exam.
