Course subjects

Module 1: Introducing Azure Stack HCIThis module describes the basic characteristics of Azure Stack HCI, along with its peer offerings that are part of the Azure Stack portfolio, including Azure Stack Hub and Azure Stack Edge. The module also presents an overview of the Azure Stack HCI core technologies and management tools, and a high-level walkthrough of a typical implementation process. Finally, the modules concludes with a summary of Azure Stack HCI hybrid capabilities, most of which are covered in detail in Module 4.

Lessons

  • Overview of Azure Stack HCI

  • Overview of Azure Stack HCI technologies

  • Overview of Azure Stack HCI management tools

  • Overview of the Azure Stack HCI hybrid capabilities

Module 2: Operating and maintaining Azure Stack HCIThis module describes how to implement, manage, and maintain workloads on Azure Stack HCI. As described in the first module, Azure Stack HCI is designed to optimize performance, resiliency, and scalability of specific types of workloads. Implementing these workloads follows the initial configuration, which involves provisioning virtualized storage and networking layers on top of the hardware approved by Microsoft that is running the Windows Server 2019 operating system. This module provides an overview of different Azure services and Windows Server functionality that can be used to manage and maintain those workloads, leveraging integration of Windows Server 2019 with Azure.

Lessons

  • Implementing and managing workloads on Azure Stack HCI

  • Maintaining Azure Stack HCI

Lab : Lab B: Using Windows Admin Center in hybrid scenarios

  • Integrating hyperconverged infrastructure with Azure services

  • Reviewing Azure integration functionality

  • Managing updates to hyperconverged infrastructure

Module 3: Planning for and implementing Azure Stack HCI storageThis module describes how to plan for and implement Azure Stack HCI Storage. The module covers the core HCI storage technologies in detail and includes specific coverage of Storage QoS and Storage Replica (in the context of Azure Stack HCI). The module describes the process of planning, implementation and management of Azure Stack HCI storage.

Lessons

  • Overview of Azure Stack HCI Storage core technologies

  • Planning for Storage Spaces Direct in Azure Stack HCI

  • Implementing a Storage Spaces Direct-based hyper-converged infrastructure

  • Managing Storage Spaces Direct in Azure Stack HCI

  • Planning for and implementing Storage QoS

  • Planning for and implementing Storage Replica

Lab : Implementing a Storage Spaces Direct cluster

  • Implementing an Storage Spaced Direct cluster by using Windows PowerShell

  • Managing of a Storage Spaces Direct cluster by using Windows Admin Center and Windows PowerShell

  • Managing and monitoring resiliency of a Storage Spaces Direct cluster

  • Managing Storage Spaces Direct cluster tiers

  • Identifying and analyzing metadata of a Storage Spaces Direct cluster (optional)

Module 4: Planning for and implementing Azure Stack HCI networkingThis module describes how to plan for and implement Software Defined Networking in Azure Stack HCI. The module focuses on the technology and its basic functionality, with emphasis on Windows Admin Center as the primary SDN management tool. The module also covers in more detail four specific components of SDN available in Azure Stack HCI; Switch Embedded Teaming (SET), Software Load Balancing (SLB), Datacenter Firewall, and RAS Gateways.
