About this book

Microsoft Azure is one of the upcoming cloud platforms that provide cost effective solutions and services which helps businesses overcome complex infrastructure challenges. The main goal of this book is to scale your cloud administration skills with Microsoft Azure.

This book will start off with an introduction to the management of Azure subscriptions, and explain how to manage Azure resources. Next, you will configure and manage virtual networks and how to integrate them with a set of Azure services. You will then handle the identity and security for users with the help of Azure Active Directory and manage access from a single place using policies and defined roles. Going forward, you will get familiar with receipts to manage virtual machines. The next set of chapters will deal with solving advanced problems like DDoS protection, load balancing or networking for containers. You will also set up file servers, as well as manage and store backups. Later, you will be reviewing monitoring solutions and backup plans for a host of services. The last set of chapters will help you integrate different services with Azure Event Grid, Azure Automation and Azure Logic Apps. You will also learn to manage Azure DevOps towards the end.

By the end of this book, you will be proficient enough to easily administer your Azure-based cloud environment.
