Configuring and Managing Virtual Networks


Learn about Azure Networking and how to create a highly-secure environment to run your virtual machines and applications. Using your private IP addresses and define subnets, accessing control policies, and more, learn how to extend your datacentre into the cloud.

Course Overview

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.

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.

Prerequisites

  • Successful Cloud Administrators start this role with experience on operating systems, virtualization, cloud infrastructure, storage structures, and networking.
