Course Information

About this course:

This course provides the underlying knowledge required by ITPros/Devs who will be evaluating Microsoft Azure, whether they are administrators, developers, or database administrators.

This course introduces students to the principles of cloud computing. Students will become familiar with how these principles have been implemented in Microsoft Azure. In addition, this course explains how to implement the core Azure infrastructure, consisting of virtual networks and storage. With this foundation, students will be able to create the most common Azure services, including Azure Virtual Machines, Web Apps, and Azure SQL Database. The students will also learn about container-based Azure services and the most prominent examples of serverless computing. The course concludes by describing features of Azure Active Directory (Azure AD).

On average, an associate in Microsoft Azure skills can earn up to $85,000/- annually.  

Course Objectives:

Once the course is complete, students will gain the capabilities to

  • Describe cloud computing, Azure, and Azure subscriptions.
  • Use Azure PowerShell, the Azure Software Development Kit (SDK), and the Azure command-line interface (CLI) to manage Azure subscriptions.
  • Create and configure virtual machines in Azure, and manage their disks.
  • Create, configure, and monitor web apps in Azure and deploy Azure platform as a service (PaaS) cloud services.
  • Create and configure Azure virtual networks.
  • Create, manage, and configure cloud storage in Azure.
  • Use Azure SQL Database to create, configure, and manage SQL databases.
  • Create and manage Azure AD.


This course can be undertaken by those students who want to evaluate configuring, deploying, and administering Virtual Machines and services via Microsoft Azure, which includes the following:

  • Developers wishing to evaluate developing Microsoft Azure solutions.
  • Windows Server administrators wishing to evaluate the migration of on-premises Active Directory services and roles to the cloud.
  • IT professionals wishing to evaluate how Microsoft Azure can be used to host websites and mobile app back-end services.
  • Database administrators wishing to evaluate how Microsoft Azure can be used to host SQL databases.


  • Understanding of how to deploy websites
  • A basic understanding of virtualization
  • A basic understanding of Active Directory concepts, including domains, users, and domain controllers
  • A basic understanding of database concepts, including tables and simple queries


Frequently Asked Questions

Q1: What is known as compute in Azure?

Microsoft Azure, formerly known as Windows Azure, is Microsoft's public cloud computing platform. Users can pick and choose from these services to develop and scale new applications, or run existing applications, in the public cloud.

Q2: What is the role of Azure developer?

Microsoft Azure is a leading cloud provider and growing fast. Azure developers leverage the benefits of cloud architecture to create cloud native applications that scale with ease. To excel in this role, you must understand security, development, testing, deployment and more.

Q3: Which of the web application can be deployed with Azure?

The web applications that can be deployed by Azure are WCF, PHP and ASP.NET. This is possible as software development kits for Java and Ruby have been launched to allow applications to place calls to Azure service center.

Q4: What standard does Azure use?

The Azure Windows Services Platform API uses the industry standard REST, HTTP, and XML protocols that are part of any Service Oriented Architecture cloud infrastructure to allow applications to talk to Azure.

Q5: How many Azure services are there?

There are over 600 services that fall under the Azure umbrella, but broadly speaking, it is a web-based platform on which applications and services can be built, tested, managed, and deployed.

Q6: What is azure scale set?

Azure virtual machine scale sets let you create and manage a group of identical, load balanced VMs. With virtual machine scale sets, you can build large-scale services for areas such as compute, big data, and container workloads.

Q7: Is Microsoft Azure IaaS or PaaS?

Microsoft Azure is a service that provides cloud computing for building, managing, deploying and testing applications and services. It supports various programming languages. It provides three options – infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS) and software as a service (SaaS).

Q8: What is auto scaling in Azure?

An Azure virtual machine scale set can automatically increase or decrease the number of VM instances that run your application. This automated and elastic behavior reduces the management overhead to monitor and optimize the performance of your application.

Q9: How does Azure load balancer work?

An Azure load balancer is a Layer-4 (TCP, UDP) load balancer that provides high availability by distributing incoming traffic among healthy VMs. A load balancer health probe monitors a given port on each VM and only distributes traffic to an operational VM.

Q10: What are the most popular Azure services?

Here are seven popular Azure cloud services to consider adding to your IT stack:

  • App Service
  • Virtual Machines
  • DevOps Project
  • Azure Backup
  • Azure Cosmos DB
  • Azure Active Directory (AD)
  • Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)
