This module reviews the services available in the Azure platform and the Management Portals used to manage the service instances.
Although many Microsoft Azure services use virtual machines, sometimes your application might have a unique need where it requires a virtual machine that is completely unmanaged. Azure provides networking, backup, and virtualization services as part of its Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering. Lesson 1, Azure Virtual Machines, introduces the Virtual Machines service and describes the options that you can use for creating a virtual machine. Lesson 2, Azure Virtual Machine Workloads, provides details on the types of workloads that you can deploy to a virtual machine. Lesson 3, Migrating Azure Virtual Machine Instances, describes the options for migrating virtual machines to and from Azure. Lesson 4, Azure Virtual Networks, reviews the Microsoft Azure Virtual Network offering available in Azure. Lesson 5, Highly Available Azure Virtual Machines, reviews the options and features that must be considered when designing your Virtual Machine instances for high availability scenarios. Lesson 6, Virtual Machine Configuration Management, describes the common methods for managing and duplicating the configuration for virtual machines. Lesson 7, Customizing Azure Virtual Machine Networking, reviews the options for managing inbound and outbound connection rules for your virtual machine.
This module provides an overview of the Azure Web Apps service. Lesson 1, “Azure Web Apps”, describes the Web Apps service in Azure. Lesson 2, “Hosting Web Applications in Azure“, describes the behavior and lifecycle of an Azure Web App. Lesson 3, “Configuring an Azure Web App”, discusses the various configuration options available to change the behavior of your Web App. Lesson 4, “Publishing an Azure Web App”, describes the process for publishing a web application using WebDeploy to Azure Web Apps.
Dynamic web applications must store the data that is being managed and manipulated by end users. ASP.NET technologies such as ADO.NET and Entity Framework provide a way for accessing data in SQL Server. In the cloud, the Microsoft Azure platform provides a database as a service offering that allows developers to use SQL in the same way as they would in an on-premises location. Lesson 1, Azure SQL Database Overview, describes the Azure SQL Database service and reasons you would consider using it. Lesson 2, Managing SQL Databases in Azure, describes the familiar and new management tools that are available for use with a SQL database that is hosted in Azure. Lesson 3, Azure SQL Database Tools, describes the SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) templates, panes, and projects that are available in Microsoft Visual Studio 2013. Lesson 4, Securing and Recovering an Azure SQL Database Instance, describes the recovery scenarios relevant in Azure SQL Database.
As a developer, you should keep in mind certain considerations while designing applications for the cloud. Although there are many platform improvements available in the ASP.NET ecosystem, you need to rethink the way you design your applications, and the patterns that are used, with respect to the scalability and reliability metrics present for the cloud applications . Lesson 1, Application Design Practices for Highly Available Applications, discusses some of the considerations that are needed when you design applications that are hosted in the cloud such that they result in minimal downtime. Lesson 2, Building High Performance Applications by Using ASP.NET, describes the changes in the ASP.NET stack in .NET 4.5 that improve the framework’s performance in web applications. Lesson 3, Common Cloud Application Patterns, introduces a small set of example patterns from the MSDN cloud patterns reference. Lesson 4, Application Analytics, demonstrates the Application Insights service. Lesson 5, Caching Application Data, compares the Microsoft Azure Cache and Microsoft Azure Redis Cache services..
Many new application workloads require new databases that offer scale and flexibility far beyond the capabilities of a traditional relational database. In Azure, there is a wide variety of NoSQL database services available for applications to store unstructured data in a flexible, schema-free and scalable fashion. Lesson 1, “Azure Storage,” introduces the Azure Storage service and details some of the storage types available to applications using Azure Storage. Lesson 2, “Azure Storage Tables,” details the Table key-value store available as a NoSQL database in Azure Storage. Lesson 3, “Redis Cache,” introduces the Redis Cache key-value based NoSQL store and details how it can be used as a cache database. Lesson 4, “Azure Search,” describes the Azure Search service offering that indexes and provides rich-search capabilities for documents stored in structured and unstructured storage. Lesson 5, “Azure Cosmos DB,” explores the Azure Cosmos DB service as a flexible NoSQL database that supports a large variety of APIs and models.
When you want to scale to different cloud instances, storing files to a local disk becomes a difficult process to maintain and eventually an unreliable method of storage. Azure provides a Blob storage mechanism that not only offers high performance but also supports integration to Microsoft Azure Content Delivery Network (CDN) for low latency downloads. Lesson 1, Storage Blobs, describes the Blob service and the types of blobs supported. Lesson 2, Controlling Access to Storage Blobs, provides details on the ways that you can secure and grant temporary access to blobs or containers. Lesson 3, Configuring Azure Storage Accounts, looks at some of the unique configuration options available for Storage blobs. Lesson 4, Azure Files, introduces briefly the Azure Files service.
With web applications presenting content and worker roles processing the logic, there needs to be a mechanism that facilitates the communication between these different entities. Microsoft Azure provides two queuing mechanisms that you can use for this purpose. Lesson 1, Azure Storage Queues, introduces the queue mechanism that is available in Azure storage accounts. Lesson 2, Azure Service Bus, introduces the Service Bus offering in Azure. Lesson 3, Azure Service Bus Queues, describes the queuing mechanism that is available in Service Bus and how it differs from Azure Storage queues. Lesson 4, Azure Service Bus Relay, describes the relay mechanism available to connect client devices to WCF services. Lesson 5, Azure Service Bus Notification Hubs, introduces the Notification Hubs service and infrastructure useful for pushing notifications to mobile devices.
Although you can manage most of the Azure services by using both of the Azure portals or Microsoft Visual Studio 2013, you can use scripting to completely automate the management of the same resources. This module will look at automating the lifecycle of the services by using client libraries, Windows PowerShell, REST, and the Resource Manager. Lesson 1, Azure SDK Client Libraries, briefly describes the client libraries that are available for managing and interacting with Azure services. Lesson 2, Scripting Azure Service Management by Using Windows PowerShell, describes the modules that are available for managing Azure services by using Windows PowerShell. Lesson 3, Azure REST Interface, introduces and describes the Service Management API. Lesson 4, Resource Manager, discusses the new Resource Manager in Azure and the concepts associated with the new method of managing resources.
Although you can deploy your cloud applications manually, it is in your best interest to begin automating cloud-based deployments. Automation creates many benefits including the ability to trace past actions, easier repetition of deployment tasks and reduced possibility of human error. Lesson 1, “Continuous Integration,” discusses strategies for integrating source control repositories with running cloud service instances for automatic deployment scenarios. Lesson 2, “DevTest Labs,” introduces the DevTest service which is useful for automating the creation of machine-specific environments and lab scenarios. Lesson 3, “Azure Resource Manager Templates,” discusses the capability to deploy entire workloads in Azure from a JSON template. Lesson 4, “Managed Solution Hosting,” introduces Service Fabric, Azure Container Service and Azure Container Instances as methods used to host solutions using a fully-managed service.
Just like on-premises applications, applications in the cloud need streamlined security mechanisms that are flexible. Azure Active Directory is an identity provider that can provide identity and access functionality for your custom applications or SaaS applications. Lesson 1, “Azure Active Directory,” introduces the Azure AD service. Lesson 2, “Azure AD Directories,” details how to create a directory in Azure AD. Lesson 3, “Azure AD Offerings,” describes the various offerings available in Azure AD such as B2B, B2C, and multi-factor authentication. Lesson 4, “Azure Key Vault,” introduces the Azure Key Vault service designed to manage.
