Implement a Windows Server hybrid cloud infrastructure

Microsoft via Microsoft Learn

Overview

  • Module 1: You'll learn to connect your on-premises environment to Azure, implement subnets and routing between your on-premises and cloud environments, and ensure that workloads in the cloud and on-premises perform DNS resolution to locate each other.
  • After completing this module, you will be able to:

    • Describe Azure network topologies.
    • Implement an Azure VPN.
    • Explain how to create a route-based VPN gateway using the Azure portal.
    • Implement Azure ExpressRoute.
    • Implement an Azure WAN.
    • Implement DNS resolution in hybrid environments.
  • Module 2: Implement hybrid identity with Windows Server
  • After completing this module, you will be able to:

    • Select an Azure AD integration model.
    • Plan for Azure AD integration.
    • Prepare on-premises AD DS for directory synchronization.
    • Install and configure directory synchronization using Azure AD Connect.
    • Implement Seamless Single Sign-on (SSO).
    • Enable Azure AD login for an Azure Windows virtual machine (VM).
    • Describe Azure AD DS.
    • Implement and configure Azure AD DS.
    • Manage Windows Server 2019 in an Azure AD DS instance.
    • Join a Windows Server VM to a managed domain.
  • Module 3: You'll be able to plan a migration and select appropriate server migration tools. You will also learn how to use Azure Migrate, how to assess physical servers, and how to migrate those servers.
  • After completing this module, you will be able to:

    • Plan your migration.
    • Describe Azure Migrate.
    • Migrate server workloads using Windows Server Migration Tools.
    • Assess physical servers with Azure Migrate.
    • Migrate on-premises servers to Azure.
  • Module 4: Implement a hybrid file server infrastructure
  • After completing this module, you will be able to:

    • Describe Azure file services.
    • Configure Azure file services.
    • Configure connectivity to Azure file services.
    • Describe Azure File Sync.
    • Implement Azure File Sync.
    • Deploy Azure File Sync.
    • Manage cloud tiering.
    • Migrate from DFSR to Azure File Sync.
  • Module 5: You'll learn about Azure Backup before learning to implement Recovery Vaults and Azure Backup Policies. You’ll learn to implement Windows IaaS VM recovery, perform backup and restore of on-premises workloads, and manage Azure VM backups.
  • After completing this module, you will be able to:

    • Describe Azure Backup.
    • Implement Recovery Vaults.
    • Implement Azure Backup policies.
    • Recover Windows IaaS VMs.
    • Perform file and folder recovery.
    • Perform backup and recovery of on-premises workloads.
    • Explain how to manage Azure VM backups with Azure Backup.
  • Module 6: You'll learn how to implement scaling for virtual machine scale sets and load-balanced VMs. You'll also learn how to implement Azure Site Recovery.
  • After completing this module, you will be able to:

    • Describe virtual machine scale sets.
    • Implement scaling.
    • Implement load-balancing virtual machines.
    • Implement Azure Site Recovery.
