Experience with Microsoft operating systems combined with a fundamental knowledge of cloud computing and virtualization are recommended but not required.
Module 1, Manage Azure Subscriptions and Resources, first works with how to manage Azure Subscriptions, and then moves on to analysis of resource utilization and consumption. The module finishes with how to manage resource groups and Role-based Access Control (RBAC).
Module 2, "Implement and Manage Storage, covers how to create and configure storage accounts. It also delves into importing and exporting data to Azure and configuring Azure files. The module finishes with Implementing Azure Backup.
Module 3, Deploy and Manage Virtual Machines (VMs), first tackles how to create and configure a VM for Windows and Linux. It then covers automating the deployment of VMs and how to Manage Azure VMs. The module ends with an exploration of the management of VM backups.
Module 4, "Configure and Manage Virtual Networks," discusses all things related to virtual networking infrastructure, including how to create connectivity between virtual networks, and implementing and managing virtual networking. Creating and configuring Network Security Groups (NSG) and implementing Azure load balancer are also covered. The last two lessons in this module explain monitoring and troubleshooting virtual networking, and integrating on-premises networks with virtual networking.
Module 5, Manage Identities, covers managing Azure Active Directory (AD), managing Azure AD Objects, implementing and managing hybrid identities, and in the final lesson, implementing multi-factor authentication (MFA).
