About This Course

Azure is being adopted rapidly by the enterprise and Linux is one of the most popular workloads on Azure. That means that Linux professionals, as well as Azure professionals, should make sure they know how to manage Linux workloads in an Azure environment. This course provides an introduction to managing Linux on Azure. Whether you are a Linux professional who wants to learn how to work with Linux on Azure, or an Azure professional that needs to work with Linux in Azure, this course is for you.

The course starts with an introduction on Linux and Azure, after which you’ll learn more about advanced Linux features and how they are managed in an Azure environment. Next, you’ll learn about managing containers, either in Linux or with open source container technology that is integrated in Azure. After that, you’ll learn how to deploy virtual machines in Azure, covering different deployment scenarios. Once the VMs are available in Azure, you’ll need to know how to manage them in an efficient way, which is covered next. In the last part of this course, you’ll learn to troubleshoot Linux in Azure, and to monitor Linux in Azure using different Open Source tools.
