Introduction to Core Azure Services
# Azure Subscriptions
Understanding Active Directory
# Active Directory The central vault for your user credentials, access control lists, and organization chart.
Understanding Virtual Networks
Understanding virtual networks is a key concept to an overall understanding of any cloud or virtual infrastructure. Using our diagram, we will take a look at virtual networking in Azure at a conceptual level in order to provide you with the foundational knowledge you will need.For more on Virtual Networks in Azure, see: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-network/virtual-networks-overview
Understanding Virtual Machines (VMs)
Virtual Machines are a fundamental concept of any infrastructure implementation, on premise or in cloud. Azure's virtual machines follow the fundamental virtualization concepts and we will talk about their implementation in relation to their services in this video.
Understanding Azure Storage
During any on premise or cloud implementation, storage is a fundamental component of your implementation. Within the Cloud (and Azure is no exception), understanding how storage works, is accessed, its performance and its backup availability is an important concept to gaining a firm grasp of your environment, its performance and stability.For more on Azure Storage, see: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/common/storage-introduction
