    Hands-On Lab

    In this lab, you will create 3 virtual networks in two different regions. You will configure site-to-site connectivity between the regions using a VPN Gateway. You will next configure a client machine (the lab virtual machine) to connect to one of the virtual networks using point-to-site connectivity. Finally, you will configure virtual network to virtual network connectivity using virtual network peering. This will also allow traffic from the 3rd virtual network to transit over the VPN gateway. 

    Note: This lab is similar to the labs in the Azure Infrastructure as a Service class. It is designed for students that want to dive right in.

    Hands-On Lab

    In this lab, you will learn the foundations of deploying and configuring virtual machines in Microsoft Azure. You will configure a web farm using availability sets, load balancing, and virtual machine extensions to deploy a web app. You will configure diagnostics and monitoring for the virtual machine as well as setup network security groups to lower any potential attack surface area.

    Note: These are similar to the labs you will perform if you complete the Azure Infrastructure as a Service course too. Designed for students that just want to jump in and learn hands-on.
