Lesson Overview


Welcome to lesson 2! In this lesson we will cover Azure Infrastructure Fundamentals. Specifically, we will learn:

  • What the various IaazS resource types are that we can deploy.
  • How to use the in-portal wizard to deploy a virtual machine.
  • How to do virtual networking and load balancing, which will be critical for our project at the end of the course.
  • How to use Azure Monitor to optimize virtual machine performance and cost.
  • How to use Azure Active Directory for role-based access controls, users, and service principals.
  • How to use the Azure CLI (instead of the portal) to deploy resources.
  • When to use Azure portal vs. Azure CLI.

This lesson is a doozy! We’ll cover a lot of concepts and tools and it may be helpful for you to have a good reference on hand so you can refresh your memory as needed. So before we get started, I suggest going to the Azure documentation and bookmarking it for easy access throughout the rest of the course.

(When in doubt, check the documentation!)
