In this hands-on course, students will learn about Azure Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) using the Azure Resource Manager architecture. Students will learn how to author, maintain, and deploy Infrastructure as a Service using resource manager with an emphasis on automation. A primary focus of this course is authoring templates using JSON with Visual Studio Code (or whatever tools you prefer) that can model from simple workloads to complex orchestrations with source files that are integrated with source control to truly have versioned infrastructure as code. This course will also cover using the Azure cross-platform command line tools to manage cloud resources.
What You Will Learn
MODULE 1: Azure Resource Manager
This session focuses on the Azure Resource Manager (ARM) architecture and explains architectural concepts for ARM and how it is used to manage Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) workloads within Azure. Students will gain an understanding of resource groups, resource providers, locks, policies, tags, and role based access control (RBAC).
Using the Command line to Manage Azure IaaS
In this session the student will learn how the Azure command line tools can be used to provision and manage Azure IaaS workloads. The Azure cross-platform command line tools are used heavily in this module.
MODULE 3: Authoring ARM Templates and Configuration Management
MODULE 4: Managing the Application Lifecycle
In this session the student will learn how to integrate continuous integration, delivery, and deployment into their Azure environment. This module will walk through an end-to-end scenario with Chef, GitHub and Jenkins to fully illustrate the lifecycle of an application.;
