AZ-140: Configuring and Operating Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop AZ-140: Configuring and Operating Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop

Course description

This course teaches Azure administrators to plan, deliver, and manage remote applications and virtual desktop experiences for any type of device on Azure. Lessons include deploying and managing networking for Azure Virtual Desktop, configuring session hosts and host pools, creating session host images, deploying and managing FSLogix, monitoring health, and Azure Virtual Desktop performance, and automation of Azure Virtual Desktop management tasks. Through a combination of demos and hands-on labs, students will learn how to deploy virtual desktop apps and experiences on Azure Virtual Desktop and optimize them to work in multi-session virtual environments. Candidates for this course should have a solid understanding of Azure administration. This course assumes previous experience, including virtualization, networking, identity, storage, backup and restore, and disaster recovery. Students should have knowledge of on-premises virtual desktop infrastructure technologies related to migration to Azure Virtual Desktop. Students are expected to have used tools common to the Azure environment, such as Azure PowerShell and Cloud Shell.

 

Public profile

Students in the course AZ-140: Setting Up and Running Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop are interested in delivering applications on Azure Virtual Desktop and optimizing them to work in multi-session virtual environments. As an Azure Virtual Desktop administrator, you'll work closely with Azure administrators and architects, as well as Microsoft 365 administrators. An Azure Virtual Desktop administrator's responsibilities include planning, deploying, packaging, upgrading, and maintaining Azure infrastructure Virtual Desktop. They also create session host images, deploy and manage FSLogix, monitor Azure Virtual Desktop performance, and automate Azure Virtual Desktop management tasks.
