Windows Azure is an open and flexible cloud platform that enables developers to quickly build, deploy, and manage applications across a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters. If you have been wondering how you can take advantage of "the cloud" and integrate it into your existing IT environment, this course is for you. David Isbitski covers everything from the basics of signing up for a free Azure account to using the free developer tools, and covers each of the six major offerings from Azure: virtual machines; website development; Mobile Services for authenticating users and storing data; the Cloud Services API development and deployment tools; Data Services, which incorporates SQL, Table, and Blob storage; and app services like Service Bus for messaging. At the end, you'll tie it all together in a 5-node cloud service that processes operations through Web and Workers roles, communicates through a Service Bus message queue, and saves data to the cloud.
(SOUND). In this course, I will give you the fundamentals of what Cloud Computing is and what Microsoft's Azure platform can do for you. I'll start off by showing you how to setup the free development environment And then I will walk you through the sign up process. Next, we'll take a look at the Azure portal itself. I'll show off Azure's new IAAS offering. Or infrastructure as a service with Azure virtual machines. Then we'll create a scalable website using Azure Websites.
We'll take a look at Azure mobile services, a new offering that allows structured storage, push notifications, and a complete API set for your mobile apps. And we'll see Cloud services in action. Then we'll cover data services where we will look at SQL, Table and Blob storage. And finally, we'll take a look at app services and tie it all together with a five node cloud service. That has both web and worker roles, communicating through a service plus message cue and saving all of that to Storage.
So sit back, strap in and get ready to be up and running with Azure.
