This competency area includes configuring the on-premises virtual network to Azure, Azure Storage to a web page, Azure load balancer, path-based routing, and Azure virtual networks with the IP addresses using Azure CLI commands. Along with enabling storage logging using Azure CLI commands, configuring network security groups, and using Network Watcher and metric logs for troubleshooting a network.
- Configuration of the on-premises virtual network to Azure - Usage of Azure CLI command to configure the virtual networks with a subnet, add a gateway subnet, and then create the local network gateway.
- Configuration of Azure Storage to the web app - Usage of Azure CLI command to create, configure, and utilize the Azure storage configuration to the web application.
- Enabling storage logging and view log data - Usage of Azure CLI command to configure Azure Storage services to enable the storage logging and view log data.
- Securing Network Connectivity - Configuration of network security groups to filter network traffic to Azure resources within a Microsoft Azure virtual network.
- Utilize Azure Load Balancer to increase scalability and resiliency of service - Usage of Azure portal, PowerShell, or the Azure CLI to configure the Azure Load Balancer to distribute a load across the virtual machines.
- Utilize Application Gateway to balance a web service load - Usage of Azure CLI command to configure path-based routing for the Application Gateway.
- Utilize Azure Network Monitoring tools to monitor and troubleshoot network - Usage of Network Watcher metric and logs to troubleshoot a network.
