Azure Datacenter Architecture
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight, my name's Orin Thomas and this is module 2, Azure Datacenter Architecture. So, this is helping out with part of objective 1. 1, describe how Azure uses Global Foundation Services, GFS datacenters, which is part of the, Design Microsoft Infrastructure and Networking objective domain. Now in this first part, this is actually, we are going to take two modules, to sort of hit this 1. 1, and this is looking at understanding Azure Datacenter Architecture. So in this module we'll look at Azure datacenters, we'll talk about Azure regions, we'll talk about Azure speed test, we'll talk about Azure services, we'll talk about Azure datacenter architecture, We'll talk, briefly, about affinity groups, and we'll also talk about physical security.

Regional Availability and High Availability
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas, and this is Module 3, Regional Availability and High Availability in my Design Microsoft as your Infrastructure and Networking course. Now this module deals with part of objective 1. 1, the second part of objective 1. 1. The first of it, we dealt with in module 2, and here we're going to deal with the sub-points regional availability and high availability. So, in this module we're going to talk about regional availability, we're going to discuss service availability, we'll talk about regional datacenters, and we'll talk about high availability. Let's get started.

Azure Active Directory
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas, and in this module we're going to look at Azure Active Directory. So in this module we're going to look at Active Directory Domain Services on Azure Infrastructure as a Service. We're going to look at Azure AD, and Azure AD Premium. We're going to talk about directory synchronization between your own on-prem AD instance and Azure AD. We're also going to talk about the brand new Azure AD Domain Services. So, let's get into it.

Azure ACLs
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas, and in this module we're going to be talking about Azure Access Control Lists. These are also sometimes called network control lists. So, in this module we'll talk about, and I'll just tell you what a network access control list is, I'll talk about the permit and deny settings, I'll discuss how important rule order is, and then I'll go into how you actually manage an Azure access control list.

Azure Network Security Groups
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas, and in this module, we're going to look at Azure Network Security Groups. So this module specifically is looking at the part of the Design Azure Virtual Networks, Networking Services, DNS, DHCP, and IP Addressing Configuration objective of the Design Microsoft Azure Infrastructure and Networking Objective Domain of the 70-534 Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions exam, and in that particular objective, one of the examples they gave was Azure network security groups, which of course, is what this module is about. So in this module, we're going to talk about what on earth is an NSG, or a Network Security Group. Network security groups versus access control lists, we covered access control lists in the last module, we're going to talk about NSG rules and how they work, and then we're going to talk about how you build NSG rules using NSG PowerShell cmdlets.

Design Azure VMs
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas, and in this module, we're going to look at Designing Azure VMs. This module deals with part of the Design Azure Compute objective of the Design Microsoft Azure Infrastructure and Networking objective domain, which is what this course is about, which is part of the 70-534 Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions exam of which this course is one of but a series. In this module, we'll look at VM architecture for IaaS, or Infrastructure as a Service, as I'm sure you're well aware, we'll also talk about Azure virtual machine classification, and we'll very briefly discuss VM architecture for Platform as a Service, or PaaS. Ready? Let's get into it.

Azure Availability Sets, Fault Domains, and Update Domains
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas, and in this module, we're going to look at Availability Sets, Fault Domains, and Update Domains. Now this module deals with part of the Design Azure Compute Objective of the Design Microsoft Azure Infrastructure and Networking objective domain in the 70-534 Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions exam, and of course, all of the modules in this course deal with the Design Microsoft Azure Infrastructure and Networking objective domain. Anyway, in this module, we're going to look at fault domains, update domains, and availability sets. Let's get into it.

Azure VPNs and ExpressRoute
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas, and in this module, we're going to look at Azure Virtual Private Networks and ExpressRoute. So the whole point of this module, of course, is it's part of your studies towards the 70-534 Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions exam, and in this particular module, we're looking at the specific objective, Describe Azure Virtual Private Network, VPN, and ExpressRoute Architecture and Design, and this is part of the Design Microsoft Azure Infrastructure and Networking objective domain, which is of course the subject of this course. So in this module, we're going to look at point-to-site VPNs, we're going to look at site-to-site VPNs, we're going to create and manage a VPN, and we're going to talk about ExpressRoute. Let's get into it.

Azure Load Balancing and Traffic Manager
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas, and this is the Azure Load Balancing and Traffic Manager module. This module deals with the Describe Azure Services objective of the Design Microsoft Azure Infrastructure and Networking objective domain of the 70-534 Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions exam. In this module, we're going to talk about Azure load balancing options, and we're also going to talk about Azure Traffic Manager.

Azure Media Services and Content Delivery Network
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas, and this is the Azure Media Services and Content Delivery Network module of my course that deals with the Design Microsoft Azure Infrastructure and Networking objective domain of the 70-534 Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions exam. And in this particular module, we're looking at part of the Describe Azure Services objective, which involves Azure Media Service and Content Delivery Network. Now the important thing to realize here is the objective itself is Describe Azure Services. This means that you kind of need to have a knowledge of how it works and a knowledge of what it does, but at this point, you don't need to sort of go in to an insane amount of explicit detail on how to actually implement it. So the approach I'm going to actually take in this module is going to be a little less demo intensive as opposed to my other modules and a little more let's just describe what this stuff does and the core concepts that you need to be familiar with to sort of have an understanding of how it works. So as I've already pointed out, in this module, we'll be looking at Azure Media Services and we'll be looking at your Content Delivery Network, also basically just referred to in all of the documentation as CDN. Let's get into it.
