Lifetime E-Learning Access



  • Beginner
  • Explore the basic Azure administration capabilities associated with provisioning resources and organizing them. You will also explore options for protecting resources from being accidentally deleted while still allowing for modifying their performance characteristics and size.
  • Intermediate
  • Explore Azure virtual networking capabilities by creating a virtual network in Azure that hosts a few Azure virtual machines, deploying them into different subnets of the virtual network, and ensuring that their private and public IP addresses do not change over time. Also protect the public endpoints and implement DNS name resolution.
  • Intermediate
  • Evaluate use of Azure storage for storing files currently residing in on-premises data storage. Minimize the cost of storage by placing rarely accessed files in lower-priced storage tiers. Explore the different protection mechanisms that Azure Storage offers and determine suitability of Azure Files for hosting on-premises file shares.


Real-life Interview Case Studies

  • The solution involves creation of a management group hierarchy to organize subscriptions, track cost, ensure compliance with the requirements of sizing, naming, location, etc.
  • The solution involves considering questions like what type of data is represented, what factors you will consider in your design, whether you will use blob access tiers and immutable storage, and how the content will be securely accessed. Your solution should consider the media, marketing literature, and corporate documents.
  • You will design an architecture for the customer images to be added to the company website by considering where the images should be stored, how you will ensure all images are scanned even when uploads are outpacing scanning, and how the customer will be notified, while incorporating the Well-Architected Framework.
