Today, data is being collected in ever-increasing amounts, at ever-increasing velocities, and in an ever-expanding variety of formats. This explosion of data is colloquially known as the Big Data phenomenon.In order to gain actionable insights into big-data sources, new tools need to be leveraged that allow the data to be cleaned, analyzed, and visualized quickly and efficiently. Azure HDInsight provides a solution to this problem by making it exceedingly simple to create high-performance computing clusters provisioned with Apache Spark and members of the Spark ecosystem. Rather than spend time deploying hardware and installing, configuring, and maintaining software, you can focus on your research and apply your expertise to the data rather than the resources required to analyze that data.Apache Spark is an open-source parallel-processing platform that excels at running large-scale data analytics jobs. Spark’s combined use of in-memory and disk data storage delivers performance improvements that allow it to process some tasks up to 100 times faster than Hadoop.

You will learn how to setup a Log Analytics workspace and install the agent on several VMs. From there, you will configure data sources from Azure as well as diagnostic data from the VMs and learn the fundamentals of querying data and events using the Log Analytics query language.This lab pre-provisions several resources in Microsoft Azure and will take 15-20 minutes to start before it is ready.
In this lab, you will configure Azure Site Recovery to protect a sample n-tier application by configuring replication from the source Azure region to a target Azure region. Once the initial replication has completed and the application is protected, you will perform a test fail over and validate application functionality. Finally, you will accomplish the cleanup of the test failover resources.Note: This lab pre-deploys several resources and will take 30-45 minutes to start.
In this lab, you will learn how to use Visual Studio Code to author an ARM Template that declares the Azure Resources necessary to host an Azure Web App, Azure SQL Database, and Azure Application Insights.
In this lab, you will provision an Azure Web App and App Service Plan. Then, you will configure a "Staging" Deployment Slot and deploy source code to it from a Github repository. Finally, you will perform a deployment slot swap to push the code deployment from Staging into Production.
In this lab, you will learn the fundamentals of automating Azure Web Apps using the Azure CLI tools. With the tools, you will provision an Azure Web App and App Service Plan. Then, you will configure a "Staging" Deployment Slot and deploy source code to it from a Github repository. Finally, you will perform a deployment slot swap to push the code deployment from Staging into Production.
In this this lab you will learn how to setup and configure Azure Automation to execute runbooks for common task automation. This will will teach you how to create an Azure Automation Account, configure runbook assets, setup source control, and teach you how to create and trigger runbooks via webooks for automating tasks against one or more Azure Virtual Machines.
In this lab, you will be introduced to basic concepts for developing with Azure Storage using Visual Studio and C#.
In this lab, the student will learn the basics of messaging patterns between software systems and how to use the Azure Service Bus as a messaging solution.
In this lab, you will learn the fundamentals of how to use the Azure PowerShell cmdlets to create and manage Azure Virtual Machines. Exercises will include performing common operations like stopping and starting VMs, creating VMs, attaching additional storage and creating and updating virtual machines.
In this lab, you will create 3 virtual networks in two different regions. You will configure site-to-site connectivity between the regions using a VPN Gateway. Finally, you will configure virtual network to virtual network connectivity using virtual network peering. This will also allow traffic from the 3rd virtual network to transit over the VPN gateway.
In this lab, you will use the Azure PowerShell cmdlets to manage common tasks with Azure Blob Storage.You will learn how to create an Azure Storage Account, create and manage containers, upload and download blobs, and manage leases and snapshots.
In this lab, you will learn how to configure and manage an Azure Cosmos DB Account (formerly Azure DocumentDB), including how to query and manage JSON documents within a Collection. Among the topics covered are using SQL language syntax to perform document queries that return JSON results, and implementing and testing global data replication and fail over.
In this lab, you will use Azure's Update Management solution to manage patches and updates for virtual machines. This involves enabling update management for a VM, assessing the status of updates, configuring alerts, scheduling update deployments, and finally viewing the results of update deployments.
In this lab, you will learn the fundamentals of configuring and managing virtual machine diagnostics and alerts as well as learn some useful troubleshooting techniques for Azure Virtual Machines.This lab pre-provisions an environment that you will use for testing diagnostics capabilities and may take up to 30 minutes before it's ready.
Application Insights is an extensible Application Performance Management (APM) service for web developers on multiple platforms. You can use it to monitor your live web applications and other services. It automatically detects performance anomalies, includes powerful analytics tools to help you diagnose issues, and helps you continuously improve performance and usability. It works for apps on a wide variety of platforms including .NET, Node.js and Java EE, hosted on-premises, hybrid, or any public cloud. It even integrates with your DevOps process with connection points available in a variety of development tools. It can even monitor and analyze telemetry from mobile apps by integrating with Visual Studio App Center.In this lab, you'll learn about how you can add Application Insights to an existing web application, as well as how to monitor the application via the Azure portal.
In this lab, you learn how to configure virtual networking peering.Virtual network peering enables you to seemlessly connect two Azure virtual networks. Once peered, the virtual networks appear as one, for connectivity purposes. The traffic between virtual machines in the peered virtual networks is routed through the Microsoft backbone infrastructure, much like traffic is routed between virtual machines in the same virtual network, through private IP addresses only.Note 1: This lab will connect two virtual networks within the same region. Peering across regions is currently in preview.Note 2: If you want a more in-depth view of virtual network connectivity (including site-to-site and point-to-site) try the Introduction to Virtual Network Connectivity lab.
In this lab, you will learn to use a Managed Identity with Azure PowerShell by creating a virtual machine with a system managed identity. You will then assign the identity to a resource group using role-based access control (RBAC).
In this lab, you learn to leverage Machine Learning Server and SQL Server Machine Learning Services to execute R code. You will use pre-installed tools of the Data Science Virtual Machine to execute Jupyter Notebooks and execute remote R code against Machine Learning Server. You will then leverage SQL Server Machine Learning Services to execute R code in SQL Server.
Azure DevOps supports two types of version control, Git and Team Foundation Version Control (TFVC). Here is a quick overview of the two vesion control systems:Team Foundation Verson Control (TFVC): TFVC is a centralized version control system. Typically, team memvers have only one version of each file on their dev machines. Historical data is maintained only on the server. Branches are path-based and created on the server.Git: Git is a distributed version control system. Git repositories can live locally (such as on a developer's machine). Each developer has a copy of the source repository on their dev machine. Developers can commit each set of changes on their dev machine and perform version control operations such as a history and compare without a network connection.Git is the default version control provider for new projects. You should use Git for version control in your projects unless you have a specific need for centralized version control features in TFVC.In this lab, you will learn how to establish a local Git repository, which can easily be syncronized with a centralized Git repository in Azure DevOps. In addition, you will learn about Git branching and merging support. You will use Visual Studio Code, but the same processess apply for using any Git-compatible client with Azure DevOps.
