In this lab, you will learn the foundations of deploying and configuring virtual machines in Microsoft Azure. You will configure a web farm using availability sets, load balancing, and virtual machine extensions to deploy a web app. You will configure diagnostics and monitoring for the virtual machine as well as setup network security groups to lower any potential attack surface area.
This lab pre-provisions an environment that you will use for testing diagnostics capabilities and may take up to 30 minutes before it's ready.
In this exercise, you will create a new Azure Storage Account that will be used to store diagnostics data from your virtual machine deployment in future exercises.
In this exercise, you will explore the diagnostics capabilities built into the Azure Virtual Machine platform. You will configure the diagnostics agent, configure alerts, and review the boot diagnostics capabilities.
