Module 2: Build a Application Infrastructure in Azure

Although many Microsoft Azure services use virtual machines, sometimes your application might have a unique need where it requires a virtual machine that is completely unmanaged. Azure provides networking, backup, and virtualization services as part of its Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering.

  • Azure Virtual Machines
  • Azure Virtual Machine Workloads
  • Migrating Azure Virtual Machine Instances
  • Highly Available Azure Virtual Machines
  • Virtual Machine Configuration Management

Configuring an App Service App,” discusses the various configuration options available to change the behavior of your app. introduces additional service offerings for web applications in Azure such as the intelligent service offerings and the API Management service that can be used as a proxy to an App Service app.

  • Azure Web Apps
  • Azure Logic and Function Apps
  • Configuring an App Service App
  • Publishing an Azure App Service App
  • Supplemental Services

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Understand the Monitor a Web App instance.
  • Use additional Azure services with a Web App instance
  • Publish a simple ASP.NET web application to Web Apps.
Module 4: Storing SQL Data in Azure

Dynamic web applications must store the data that is being managed and manipulated by end users. ASP.NET technologies such as ADO.NET and Entity Framework provide a way for accessing data in SQL Server. In the cloud, the Microsoft Azure platform provides a database as a service offering that allows developers to use SQL in the same way as they would in an on-premises location

  • Azure SQL Database Overview
  • Managing SQL Databases in Azure
  • Azure SQL Database Tools
  • Securing and Recovering an Azure SQL Database Instance
  • Additional Managed Database Services

  • Explain some of the advantages and disadvantages of hosting databases in a SQL Server installation on a virtual machine in Azure.
  • Describe the tools that you can use to manage Azure SQL Database.
Module 5: Designing Cloud Applications for Resiliency

As a developer, you should keep in mind certain considerations while designing applications for the cloud. Although there are many platform improvements available in the ASP.NET ecosystem, you need to rethink the way you design your applications, and the patterns that are used, with respect to the scalability and reliability metrics present for the cloud applications.

  • Application Design Practices for Highly Available Applications
  • Application Analytics
  • Building High Performance Applications by Using ASP.NET
  • Common Cloud Application Patterns
  • Caching Application Data

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Describe the Valet Key, Retry and Transient Fault Handling Patterns.
  • Use Load Balancing in a geographically redundant application.
  • Create modular applications with partitioned workloads.
  • Build High Performance ASP.NET Web Applications.
Module 6: Storing Unstructured Data in Azure

Many new application workloads require new databases that offer scale and flexibility far beyond the capabilities of a traditional relational database. In Azure, there is a wide variety of NoSQL database services available for applications to store unstructured data in a flexible, schema-free and scalable fashion.

  • Azure Storage introduction, tables
  • Azure Redis Cache
  • Azure Search
  • Azure Cosmos DB

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Describe the Azure Storage service.
  • Use Azure Search or Cosmos to store NoSQL data.
  • Use Azure Redis Cache to store cache data.
Module 7: Storing and Consuming Files from Azure Storage

When you want to scale to different cloud instances, storing files to a local disk becomes a difficult process to maintain and eventually an unreliable method of storage. Azure provides a Blob storage mechanism that not only offers high performance but also supports integration to Microsoft Azure Content Delivery Network (CDN) for low latency downloads.

  • Azure Storage Blobs
  • Controlling Access to Storage Blobs and Containers
  • Configuring Azure Storage Accounts
  • Azure Files

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Blob service in Microsoft Azure Storage.
  • Identify the software development kit (SDK) libraries, namespaces, and classes that are available for blobs.
Module 8: Designing a Communication Strategy by Using Queues and Service Bus

With web applications presenting content and worker roles processing the logic, there needs to be a mechanism that facilitates the communication between these different entities. Microsoft Azure provides two queuing mechanisms that you can use for this purpose

  • Azure Storage Queues
  • Azure Service Bus
  • Azure Service Bus Queues
  • Azure Service Bus Relay
  • Azure Service Bus Notification Hubs

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Describe Service Bus, Storage Queues service.
  • Describe Service Bus.
  • Describe Service Bus Relay.
  • Describe Notification Hubs service.
Module 9: Automating Integration with Azure Resources

Although you can manage most of the Azure services by using both of the Azure portals or Microsoft Visual Studio, you can use scripting to completely automate the management of the same resources. This module will look at automating the lifecycle of the services by using client libraries, Windows PowerShell, REST, and the Resource Manager.
