This course teaches IT Professionals how to create and manage VMs as part of an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) computing infrastructure. Students learn how to assess their on-premises environment for VM readiness in preparation for moving resources to the cloud, including sizing, pricing, & design considerations.

Learn how to create & deploy VMs in Azure, using the Azure portal, PowerShell, and ARM templates. Instruction on deploying custom images and Linux VMs. Learn how to configure the networking and storage components of VMs. Deploying highly available VMs is critical for planned & unplanned events, and learn how to use availability sets to ensure that VM resources are available during downtime. Learn how to use extensions and Desired State Configuration (DSC) for post deployment automation and configuration tasks.

Finally, learn how to perform VM backups, and to use Azure’s monitoring capabilities to collect, view, and analyze VM diagnostic and log data.


This course is for Azure Administrators. Azure Administrators manage the cloud services that span storage, networking, and compute cloud capabilities, with a deep understanding of each service across the full IT lifecycle. They take end-user requests for new cloud applications and make recommendations on services to use for optimal performance and scale, as well as provision, size, monitor and adjust as appropriate. This role requires communicating and coordinating with vendors. Azure Administrators use the Azure Portal and as they become more proficient they use PowerShell and the Command Line Interface. Successful Azure Administrators start this role with experience on operating systems, virtualization, cloud infrastructure, storage structures, and networking.
