Course Description

In this 16-video course, learners will discover how to apply knowledge of Azure virtual machine (VM) deployments and High Performance Computing (HPC) to address business needs, while preparing for AZ-301: Microsoft Azure Architect Design certification exam. Begin by learning about VM planning and recognizing which VM options to use. Then move into creating a VM by using the portal, using PowerShell, using the command-line interface, and using a template. Explore how to modify the underlying power of VMs; link a public IP address resource to a VM; deploy a jump box by enabling single-point incoming remote management; and deploy a VM scale set. Discover how to monitor Azure VM performance and usage metrics with Azure Monitor; set alerts and notifications for VM metrics; view VM activity logs, and examine VM diagnostic settings. Finally, examine Azure HPC and recognize when HPC deployments should be used. The exercise involves describing when Azure HPC should be used, deploying a Linux Azure VM using the portal and a Windows Azure VM using PowerShell, and resizing Azure VMs.
