About this course
This course teaches IT Professionals how to manage and maintain the infrastructure for the core web apps and services that developers build and deploy. Students will learn how Azure App Service is used as a Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering for deploying cloud apps for web and mobile environments. Students will learn how to use App Service Environments (ASE) to host a dedicated environment for securing and running App Service apps at scale. Students will also learn how to use deployment slots as staging environments for web apps, that can then be swapped into production when needed. This course also teaches students how to scale up and scale out to meet and adjust for demand, and how bandwidth for web traffic can be optimized using Application Gateways and Content Delivery Networks (CDN). Lastly, the course provides students with an overview of serverless computing solutions, including Azure Functions, Event Grid, Service Bus, and Logic Apps.
This course is for Azure Administrators. Azure Administrators manage the cloud services that span storage, networking, and compute cloud capabilities, with a deep understanding of each service across the full IT lifecycle. They take end-user requests for new cloud applications and make recommendations on services to use for optimal performance and scale, as well as provision, size, monitor and adjust as appropriate. This role requires communicating and coordinating with vendors. Azure Administrators use the Azure Portal and as they become more proficient they use PowerShell and the Command Line Interface.
