Azure Administrator, Deployment (AZ-100)

Overview

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.

Successful Azure Administrators start this role with experience on operating systems, virtualization, cloud infrastructure, storage structures, and networking.

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.
  • Deploy resources with ARM templates and organize Azure resources. 
  • Optimize your use of Azure tools like the Azure portal, Azure PowerShell, Cloud Shell and the Azure CLI.
