This course teaches IT Professionals how to manage their Azure subscriptions, including access, policies, and compliance, as well as how to track and estimate service usage and related costs. Students also learn how cloud resources are managed in Azure through user and group accounts. Students learn how to grant appropriate access to Azure AD users, groups, and services through Role-based access control (RBAC). Students also discover the core monitoring tools and capabilities provided by Azure, including Azure Alerts and Activity Log. Students are then introduced to Log Analytics as a broad data analytics solution, and use this service to query and analyze operational data. Students then learn about the Azure Resource Manager deployment model, and how to work with resources, resource groups and ARM templates.
Who Should Attend
This course is for Azure Administrators. Azure Administrators manage the cloud services that span storage, networking, and compute cloud capabilities, with a deep understanding of each service across the full IT lifecycle. They take end-user requests for new cloud applications and make recommendations on services to use for optimal performance and scale, as well as provision, size, monitor and adjust as appropriate. This role requires communicating and coordinating with vendors. Azure Administrators use the Azure Portal and as they become more proficient they use PowerShell and the Command Line Interface.
After completing this course, students will be able to:
Manage Azure subscriptions and billing, and implement Azure policies.
Implement access management with Azure users, groups, and role-based access control.
Use Azure Monitor to configure Azure alerts and review the Azure Activity Log.
Query and analyze Log Analytics data.
