The Azure platform is robust and vast at the same time. It supports hundreds of features and runs many prebuilt services. As such, it is a difficult art to master. You require a trustworthy guide to show you the way. This is a hands-on book! It helps you focus on the core skills required for running Azure.
It breaks down the most important Azure concepts into bite-sized lessons. Using this you will be able to learn how to:
Get Started with Azure
Use core Azure infrastructure for writing and deploying web servers.
Make your applications and data secure
Utilize platform services—including how to choose which service for which task.
Get ready to adapt to new technologies, including containers and Kubernetes, AI/Machine Learning, and IoT.
There’s a powerful suite of Azure services dedicated to containers that aligns more with the PaaS approach. If you are not aware, containers offer a concept of isolation similar to VMs. However, Containers are typically much more lightweight than VMs and can start up quicker than VMs, often in a matter of seconds rather than minutes. Moreover, the size of a container image is typically only tens or hundreds of MBs, compared to many tens of GBs for VMs.
