Configure and Manage Virtual Networking
Jonathan Tuliani
6 h 44 m
Lecture Overview
In this course, you will learn how to implement and manage virtual networking and other networking services. You will learn the foundations of how to create and configure a virtual network, including configuring subnets, name resolution and securing access using network and application security groups. From there you will learn how to monitor and troubleshoot virtual networks using tools such as Azure Network Watcher. Finally, you will learn how to integrate an on-premises with your Azure virtual networks using technologies such as ExpressRoute, Site-to-Site VPN, and Virtual network peering.

Lecture Modules

In this module, we'll start by looking at what a virtual network is, and give an overview of how virtual networks are created and configured. We'll then look in detail about how public and private IP addresses are managed in Azure, and how they integrate with other networking components. Next, we'll discuss how virtual network subnets are configured, which is followed by a detailed discussion of how to configure network routing. We'll then look at network interfaces, which connect your network to your virtual machines. We'll close this module by studying how virtual networks can be connected together using virtual network peering.

In this first section, we'll start with a review what DNS is and how it works. This provides an essential context and technical background for the rest of this module. We'll then give a brief overview of the various DNS services and features available in Azure, so you understand the overall DNS landscape.
In this module we'll discuss how to secure access to virtual networks.
In this module, we will start by providing an overview of the Azure Application Gateway, including it's core features, the scenarios they address, and how the Application Gateway is deployed and configured. We'll then move on to an in-depth discussion of Azure Load Balancer. We will review its common use cases and configuration options, and conclude by discussing monitoring and troubleshooting.
In this module, we will start by providing an overview of Network Watcher. Next, we will review Monitoring of Network Resources, followed by Monitoring and Troubleshooting On-Premises Connectivity and Troubleshoot Virtual Network Connectivity. We will conclude by presenting the most common methods of troubleshooting External Networking.
In this module, we will start by discussing how to configure a VPN gateway, and how to use the gateway to create VPN connections into you Azure network. We'll then look at how to obtain a dedicated connection from your network to Azure, using ExpressRoute, and how to verify connectivity between networks. We'll finish this module by looking at the Azure Virtual WAN, which enables large-scale connectivity across a large number of sites.
