Modules in this learning path

Learn how to configure networking in a secure way for your Azure virtual machines.

A good Azure IP addressing schema provides flexibility, room for growth, and integration with on-premises networks. The schema ensures that communication works for deployed resources, minimizes public exposure of systems, and gives the organization flexibility in its network. If not properly designed, systems might not be able to communicate, and additional work will be required to remediate.

Use virtual network peering to enable communication across virtual networks in a way that's secure and minimally complex.

Network security groups and service endpoints help you secure your virtual machines and Azure services from unauthorized network access.

Evaluate Azure Bastion. Deploy Azure Bastion to securely connect to Azure virtual machines directly within the Azure portal, to effectively replace an existing jumpbox solution. Monitor remote sessions by using diagnostic logs. Manage remote sessions by disconnecting a user session.

Create a DNS zone for your domain name. Create DNS records to map the URL to an IP address. Test that the domain name resolves to your web server.

Learn how to control Azure virtual network traffic by implementing custom routes.

Deploy Azure Firewall, route all network traffic through Azure Firewall, and configure rules. Route the outbound network traffic from the Azure Virtual Desktop host pool to the service through Azure Firewall.

VPN Gateway in Azure provides secure connectivity between your on-premises networks and clients.

Connect your on-premises systems and users to Azure and Office 365 by using ExpressRoute for private, dedicated, and guaranteed throughput connectivity.

Discuss the different load balancers in Azure and how to choose the right Azure load balancer solution to meet your requirements.

Review multidimensional metrics for the load balancer in Azure Monitor Metrics, and check health probe status for the load balancer.

Improve application resilience by distributing load across multiple servers and use path-based routing to direct web traffic.

Use Network Watcher tools, diagnostics, and logs to help find and fix networking issues in your Azure infrastructure.

You learned how to publish static web content using an Azure Content Delivery Network (CDN) and Azure Blob Services.

Azure Traffic Manager provides DNS load balancing to your application, so you improve your ability to distribute your application around the world. Use Traffic Manager to improve the performance and availability of your application.
