Microsoft Azure Networking

ipSpace.net » Workshops » Microsoft Azure Networking

Traditional networking engineers entering the world of public cloud for the first time often feel like Alice in Wonderland. Everything looks and sounds familiar, and yet it all feels a bit different – ACLs sit in front of servers instead of on a router, there is no router, NAT happens somewhere behind the scenes…

This whole day workshop will help demystify the networking aspects of Microsoft Azure. We’ll start with the high-level concepts, cover security aspects, and conclude with complex routing and hybrid cloud implementations.

Availability

  • Microsoft Azure Networking is a 1 day intensive instructor-led workshop.
  • Contact us for more details or if you want to have a customized on-site workshop for a closed group of up to 20 attendees

Topics Covered

The workshop will focus on the design aspects of private cloud infrastructure including:

  • Private and public addressing
  • Azure virtual networks
  • Packet forwarding in Azure
  • Internet access and load balancing
  • Related services
  • Provisioning and orchestration

Addressing

  • Internal and external addresses
  • Multiple IP addresses per VM instance
  • Public IP addresses
  • Using IPv6

Security

  • Security groups
  • Network virtual appliances
  • Virtual network TAP

Beyond a single virtual network

  • Virtual network peering
  • ExpressRoute
  • Building hybrid clouds

Takeaways

After attending this workshop you’ll be able to:

  • Map network infrastructure requirements into Azure concepts and objects
  • Design complex Azure networking infrastructure
  • Design security, Internet access and inbound load balancing for Azure workloads
  • Build hybrid clouds by connecting Azure workloads with external networks


Target Audience

This workshop targets architects and designers who are planning, designing or building networking infrastructure within Microsoft Azure, or connecting Azure workloads with on-premises data centers.

It will also help server, virtualization, security and networking engineers understand the advantages and limitations of Azure virtual networks and related security and load balancing solutions.
