Course Outline Module 1: Backing Azure Solutions with Azure Storage This module describes how many Azure services use the Azure Storage service as a backing store for other application solution in Azure. The module dives into critical considerations when using Azure Storage as a supplemental service for an all-up Azure solution. After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Determine the ideal pricing option for Azure Storage based on a solution’s requirements.
  • Identify performance thresholds for the Azure Storage service.
  • Determine the type of Storage blobs to use for specific solution components.
  • Use the Azure Files service for SMB operations.
  • Identify solutions that could benefit from the use of StorSimple physical or virtual devices. Module 2: Comparing Database Options in Azure This module compares the various relational & non-relational data storage options available in Azure. Options are explored as groups such as relational databases (Azure SQL Database, MySQL, & PostgreSQL on Azure), non-relational (Azure Cosmos DB, Storage Tables), streaming (Stream Analytics) and storage (Data Factory, Data Warehouse, Data Lake). Module 3: Monitoring & Automating Azure Solutions This module covers the monitoring and automation solutions available after an Azure solution has been architected, designed & possibly deployed. The module reviews services that are used to monitor individual applications, the Azure platform, & networked components. This module also covers automation & backup options to enable business-continuity scenarios for solutions hosted in Azure.
