To help developers build and run their applications, services and
integrate upcoming technologies, Microsoft has released an eBook – Learn Azure in a Month of Lunches.
The eBook offers great insights into entry into cloud administration.
Besides, it also gives a high-level explanation of each concept and
common implementations. 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.
