·         Integrate their existing solutions with external identity providers using Azure AD B2B or B2C.

·         Design a hybrid identity solution.

·         Determine when to use advanced features of Azure AD such as Managed Service Identity, MFA and Privileged Identity Management.

·         Secure application secrets using Key Vault.

·         Secure application data using SQL Database and Azure Storage features.

·         Detail the various APIs available in Cognitive Services.

·         Identify when to use the Face API, Speech API or Language Understanding (LUIS) service.

·         Describe the relationship to Bot Framework and Azure Bot Services.

 

Day 2 - Design a Data Platform Solution – AZ-301T02

Module 1:

·         Backing Azure Solutions with Azure Storage

·         This module describes how many Azure services use the Azure Storage service as a backing store for other application solution in Azure. The module dives into critical considerations when using Azure Storage as a supplemental service for an all-up Azure solution.

 

 

Module 2:

·         Comparing Database Options in Azure

·         This module compares the various relational and non-relational data storage options available in Azure. Options are explored as groups such as relational databases (Azure SQL Database, MySQL, and PostgreSQL on Azure), non-relational (Azure Cosmos DB, Storage Tables), streaming (Stream Analytics) and storage (Data Factory, Data Warehouse, Data Lake).

·         Lab : Deploying Database Instances in Azure

 

Module 3:

·         Monitoring & Automating Azure Solutions

·         This module covers the monitoring and automation solutions available after an Azure solution has been architected, designed and possibly deployed. The module reviews services that are used to monitor individual applications, the Azure platform, and networked components. This module also covers automation and backup options to enable business-continuity scenarios for solutions hosted in Azure.

·         Lab : Deploying Configuration Management Solutions to Azure

 

At the Day Wise Course Completion:

·         Determine the ideal pricing option for Azure Storage based on a solution’s requirements.

·         Identify performance thresholds for the Azure Storage service.

·         Determine the type of Storage blobs to use for specific solution components.

·         Use the Azure Files service for SMB operations.

·         Identify solutions that could benefit from the use of StorSimple physical or virtual devices.

·         Compare and contrast monitoring services for applications, the Azure platform, and networking.

·         Design an alert scheme for a solution hosted in Azure.

·         Select the appropriate backup option for infrastructure and data hosted in Azure.

·         Automate the deployment of future resources for backup recovery or scaling purposes.

 

Day 3  - Designing for Deployment, Migration and Integration – AZ-301T03

Module 1:

·         Deploying Resources with Azure Resource Manager

·         This module establishes a basic understanding of Azure Resource Manager and the core concepts of deployments, resources, templates, resource groups, and tags. The module will dive deeply into the automated deployment of resources using ARM templates.

·         Lab : Deploying Resources with Azure Resource Manager

 

Module 2:

·         Creating Managed Server Applications in Azure

·         This module describes how solutions can leverage serverless application hosting services in Azure to host web applications, REST APIs, integration workflows and HPC workloads without the requirement to manage specific server resources. The module focuses on App Services-related components such as Web Apps, API Apps, Mobile Apps, Logic Apps, and Functions.

·         Lab : Deploying Managed Containerized Workloads to Azure

 

At the Day Wise Course Completion:

·         Create a resource group.

·         Add resources to a resource group.

·         Deploy an ARM template to a resource group Integrate an API or Logic App with the API Management service.

·         Design an App Service Plan or multi-region deployment for high performance and scale.

·         Integrate an API or Logic App with the API Management service.

·         Design an App Service Plan or multi-region deployment for high performance and scale.

 

Day 4 - Designing an Infrastructure strategy – AZ-301T04

Module 1:

·         Application Architecture Patterns in Azure

·         This module introduces, and reviews common Azure patterns and architectures as prescribed by the Microsoft Patterns & Practices team. Each pattern is grouped into performance, resiliency, and scalability categories and described in the context of similar patterns within the category.

 

Module 2:

·         Building Azure IaaS-Based Server Applications (ADSK)

·         This module identifies workloads that are ideally deployed using Infrastructure-as-a-Service services in Azure. The module focuses on the VM Scale Sets and Virtual Machine services in Azure and how to best deploy workloads to these services using best practices and features such as Availability Sets.
