Day 1 – AZ-100.1 – Manage Subscriptions and Resources
This course teaches IT Professionals how to manage their Azure subscriptions, including access, policies, and compliance, as well as how to track and estimate service usage and related costs. Students also learn how cloud resources are managed in Azure through user and group accounts. Students learn how to grant appropriate access to Azure AD users, groups, and services through Role-based access control (RBAC). Students also discover the core monitoring tools and capabilities provided by Azure, including Azure Alerts and Activity Log. Students are then introduced to Log Analytics as a broad data analytics solution, and use this service to query and analyze operational data. Students then learn about the Azure Resource Manager deployment model, and how to work with resources, resource groups and ARM templates.
Because this course is the first course in the series for the Azure Administrator exams, there is a considerable amount of foundational content that is covered here in order to prepare students for the remaining courses in the curriculum. So students are provided with a lesson that covers tips and tricks for working in the Azure portal, as well as an introduction to key tools used in the Azure environment, such as the Cloud Shell and Resource Explorer. Emphasis is laid on PowerShell and the command line interface (CLI) as important skills to acquire not only in preparation for the exam but for the job role itself.
Day 2 – AZ-100.2 – Implementing and Managing Storage
This course teaches IT Professionals how to implement Azure storage solutions for a variety of scenarios. Students learn about the different storage accounts and services as well as basic data replication concepts and available replication schemes. Students are also introduced to Storage Explorer as a convenient way to work with Azure storage data. Students also learn the types of storage and how to work with managed and custom disks.
Azure blob storage is how Azure stores unstructured data in the cloud, and students learn how to work with blobs and blob containers. They also learn how to use Azure Files to work with file shares that are accessed via the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol. In addition to blob storage, the course covers Table and Queue storage as storage options for structured data.
Students then learn how to secure and manage storage using Shared Access Signatures (SAS) and Azure Backup, using Recovery Services Vault. Next, students learn how to use Azure File Sync to centralize an organization’s file Shares in Azure Files. Content Delivery Network (CDN) is used to store cached content on a distributed network of servers that are close to end users. Students learn how to optimize content delivery with Azure CDN, as well as how to transfer large amounts of data using the Azure Import/Export service.
Lastly, students learn how to monitor Azure storage by configuring metrics and alerts and using the Activity Log. Students learn how to analyze usage trends, trace requests, and diagnose issues with a storage account.
Day 3 – AZ-100.3 – Deploying and Managing Virtual Machines
This course teaches IT Professionals how to create and manage virtual machines as part of an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) computing infrastructure. Students learn how to assess their on-premises environment for virtual machine readiness in preparation for moving resources to the cloud, including sizing, pricing, and design considerations.
Students also learn how to create and deploy virtual machines in Azure, using the Azure portal, PowerShell, and ARM templates. The course includes instruction on deploying custom images and Linux virtual machines. Students also learn how to configure the networking and storage components of virtual machines. Deploying highly available virtual machines is critical in the light of planned and unplanned events, and students learn how to use availability sets to ensure that virtual machine resources are available during downtime. Students also learn how to use extensions and Desired State Configuration (DSC) for post deployment automation and configuration tasks.
Finally, students learn how to perform virtual machine backups, and to use Azure’s monitoring capabilities to collect, view, and analyze virtual machine diagnostic and log data.
Day 4 – AZ-100.4 – Configuring and Managing Virtual Networks
This course teaches IT Professional how to configure and manage Azure virtual networks (VNets). The benefits of moving an infrastructure to the cloud, removing the need to maintain expensive datacenters are an appealing proposition for many small and medium-sized companies. Regardless, once resources are moved to Azure, they require the same networking functionality as an on-premises deployment, and this course deals with the basic network configuration tasks.
Students review the basis of IP addressing, with specific emphasis on how public and private IP addressing works in the cloud. Students learn how to configure network routing and how to implement Azure DNS.
Securing the network infrastructure is of key importance and students learn how to use Network Security Groups (NSGs) to limit network traffic to resources in a virtual network, by creating security rules that allow or deny inbound or outbound traffic. Students also learn how to use NSG logging to diagnose and troubleshoot network connectivity problems.
The course also covers different connectivity scenarios for Azure virtual networks and students learn how to connect virtual networks with VNet-to-VNet VPN gateways and virtual network peering.
Day 5 – AZ-100.5 – Managing Identities
This course teaches IT Professional how to use Azure Active Directory (AD) to provide employees and customers with a multi-tenant cloud-based directory and identity management system. Students will learn the differences between Azure AD and Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), as well the differences in functionality offered by the different editions of Azure AD. Students also learn how to configure self-service password reset, or to use the option of password writeback to reset user passwords regardless of their location. Students are then introduced to Azure AD Identity Protection and learn how they can use it to protect their organizations from compromised accounts, identity attacks, and configuration issues. Students also learn how to integrate Azure AD with the many Software as a Service (SaaS) applications that are used, in order to secure user access to those applications.
Next, the concepts of Azure domains and tenants, and users and groups are explained and students learn how to work with the various Azure AD objects. Students are introduced to Azure role-based access control to be able to provide a more granular access based on the principle of least privilege. An administrator, or user, can do exactly the task they need to accomplish; no more, no less. Students also learn how to work with Azure joined devices and Hybrid AD joined devices, enabling their users to be productive wherever and whenever – but ensuring that corporate assets are protected and that devices meet security and compliance standards.
Students learn how to use Azure AD Connect to integrate their on-premises directories with Azure AD, providing a common identity for their users of Office 365, Azure, and SaaS applications integrated with Azure AD. Lastly, students also learn how to use Azure AD Application Proxy to be able to provide their users with remote access to web application that are published on-premises, such as SharePoint sites, Outlook Web Access, or any other line of business (LOB) applications the organization has.
