Course OverviewThis 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.What You’ll Learn:Understand virtual networking components, IP addressing, and network routing options.Implement Azure DNS domains, zones, record types, and resolution methods.Configure network security groups, service endpoints, logging, and network troubleshooting.Implement site connectivity schemas including VNet-to-VNet connections and virtual network peering.PrerequisitesSuccessful Cloud Administrators start this role with experience on operating systems, virtualization, cloud infrastructure, storage structures, and networking.

In this lab, you will manage VM Image or the OS Disk of both Windows and Linux. Generally, you may use images available in the marketplace but sometimes the marketplace may not fulfill the organization requirements. In this case, you may have to use own custom VHD which includes uploading VHD from on-premises to cloud or downloading from cloud to on-premises. When an organization wants VM having their LOB (Line of Business Application) installed, you as an Azure Admin need to play with images. It will be more time saving and effective to create images as per the organization needs and use the same image on both cloud and on-premises rather than installing LOB and other configuration in each VM individually. It will give a holistic view of VMs in both on-premises and cloud environment.

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.
