- [Instructor] Azure is full of services. You can find one for every part of your tech organization. Some teams know exactly what parts of Azure they need for their first project. For those of us who are less familiar with the breath of Azure, it can be overwhelming to determine what is available for your project. Regardless of your job description, there are Azure services that can help you do your work in the cloud. Let's look at two websites that can help you learn more about the Azure categories. The first place most of us look after getting an Azure account is in the Azure portal.
This where you provision your services via templets. It's also one of the main ways to manage your services. If you look down on the left side of the screen, there's a menu of categories. For example, there's app services, virtual machines, SQL databases and more. Now, this is not all the services that are offered through Azure, this is just the ones that Microsoft has marked as favorites. If you want to see all the services, go to the menu and choose this section here all services. And the way this works, is it's grouped by categories.
So there's a compute section that has 22 services and then there's a networking section that has 27 services and then at the bottom you can see there's a lot more areas storage, web, mobile, databases, and so on. So if I wanted to learn more about a AI and machine learning, I'd pop this open and take a look at the 10 services that are available here in this category. This shows you that Azure is huge.
There are hundreds of services and if you want to learn details about them, if you want to really dig down into what each service can do, you can then go to the Azure documentation site. So go to the Azure documentation site, click on the product section, and then the same categories that we saw over on the Azure portal are also listed here. So here's the computer section, here's the networking section and so on. And the advantage of using this site, of course, is that you get more details than what you see over there in the Azure portal.
So if I go down here to look at AI machine learning and want to know more about this cognitive services, I can click here and it takes me to the start page for the Azure Cognitive Services Documentation.
