Manage Hybrid Virtual Machines and Containers


The Manage Hybrid Virtual Machines and Containers show is for information technology (IT) professionals who want to prepare for Microsoft's AZ-800 Administering Windows Server Hybrid Core Infrastructure exam. This course specifically covers the third domain of the AZ-800 exam, Manage virtual machines and containers, which is 15-20% of the exam. A viewer of the show in addition to personal study will gain knowledge and skills required for managing virtual machines and containers, including managing Hyper-V and guest virtual machines, creating and managing containers, and managing Azure virtual machines that run Windows Server.

WEBVTT Hello, ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for tuning in. We'd like to take a bit and just give you an overview of the course you're about to dive into. I'm going to be your host and learner advocate throughout this series. My name is Wes Bryant. I've been a technical instructor for a little bit better than a decade. MCT, Microsoft Certified Trainer, hold various industry-wide certifications. And as a technical instructor, I really enjoy technology. But the person that we want to talk to is Mrs. Robin Abernathy because she is going to be our subject matter expert throughout this course. Robin, you tell our viewers a little bit about you and your background in IT training alone. Yes. So I'm Robin Abernathy, and like Wes, I do hold several certifications kind of across the board from multiple vendors, CompT and Microsoft and others. I do have about years of experience in the IT certification training arena, whether it's I've done writing, I've done teaching. So I've just done a little bit of it all, and I am so happy to be here, and I'm excited to give you some knowledge. All right. So this course is Manage Hybrid Virtual Machines and Containers. And without just giving everything away, can you tell us a little bit about what this course will be about? Yes. So the name is pretty explanatory. You're going to be going into being able to manage a virtual machine, whether you're doing it through Hyper-V on an on-prem server or whether you're doing those VMs in Azure, in the cloud. And it's going to talk about how you make those work together. Another great thing that we are going to spend some time on is containers. And those are, you know, for some of us that are in the administrative area, we aren't as familiar with containers. And so we dive into that a little bit so that you can understand how you can help your developers manage those containers. Very good. Now, who is this course geared for? I guess this will be a two-part question. Who is it geared for, and are there some assumed knowledge that they need to bring to the table in this course? I believe that you do have some assumed knowledge. You do have to be familiar with a lot of the Windows Server tools. And a little bit of familiarity with Azure would be helpful. Although Azure is a little bit easier to learn than some of the ways we've always had to learn Windows Server, because there's so many walkthroughs in Azure. I think this is geared toward anyone who really wants to learn about anything hybrid, particularly, of course, because this course focuses in on your hybrid virtual machines and containers. But we have focused in on AZ800. So if you're thinking about taking those certification exams, this is part of that AZ800 package that, depending on where you are in your knowledge level, this may be one of those courses that you want to take. All right. You know, I know why I'm excited about this course. I love Windows Server. I love virtualization, and I love working in Azure. So those are my three favorites as why I like being a part of this course. What excites you about this course, Robin? Well, the thing that excites me the most is probably just the fact that you are doing this in a hybrid manner. And I know the cloud has been out there for a while, and we've been dealing with it for many years now. However, so many of us are still kind of green. And we don't fully understand this whole hybrid thing. And I really enjoy the fact that I'm still doing some things on-prem, and those are the things that I've probably already done for a long time. But now we're trying to marry the two together and give you that hybrid infrastructure and give you all the tools that you need so you don't have to have always those physical machines sitting in your data center. You can do some of this in the cloud. All right. There you have it, ladies and gentlemen. I know that's why we're excited for this course. We hope you're excited for this course. So without further ado, push play, and we'll see you in the first episode.
