Prerequisites

Description:

In this course, the students will design various data platform technologies into solutions that are in line with business and technical requirements. This can include on-premises, cloud, and hybrid data scenarios which incorporate relational, NoSQL, or Data Warehouse data. They will also learn how to design process architectures using a range of technologies for both streaming and batch data. The students will also explore how to design data security, including data access, data policies, and standards. They will also design Azure data solutions, which includes the optimization, availability, and disaster recovery of big data, batch processing, and streaming data solutions.

Outline

Module 1: Data Platform Architecture Considerations

In this module, the students will learn how to design and build secure, scalable, and performant solutions in Azure by examining the core principles found in every good architecture. They will learn how using key principles throughout architecture, regardless of technology choice, can help you design, build, and continuously improve the architecture for an organization's benefit.

Lessons

Module 2: Azure Batch Processing Reference Architectures

In this module, students will learn the reference design and architecture patterns for dealing with the batch processing of data. The student will be exposed to dealing with the movement of data from on-premises systems into a cloud data warehouse and how it can be automated. The students will also be exposed to an AI architecture and how the data platform can integrate with an AI solution.

Module 3: Azure Real-Time Reference Architechures

In this module, the students will learn the reference design and architecture patterns for dealing with streaming data. They will learn how streaming data can be ingested by Event Hubs and Stream Analytics to deliver real-time analysis of data. They will also explore a data science architecture that streams data into Azure Databricks to perform trend analysis. They will finally learn how an Internet of Things (IoT) architecture will require data platform technologies to store data.

Lessons
  • Describe Lambda architectures for a RealTime Perspective
  • Architect a stream processing pipeline with Azure Stream Analytics
  • Design a stream processing pipeline with Azure Databricks
  • Create an Azure IoT reference architecture

Module 5: Designing for Resiliency and Scale

In this module, students will learn scaling services to handle load. They will learn how identifying network bottlenecks and optimizing storage performance are important to ensure users have the best experience. They will also learn how to handle infrastructure and service failure, recover from the loss of data, and recover from a disaster by designing availability and recoverability into the architecture.

Lessons
  • Adjust Workload Capacity by Scaling
  • Optimize Network Performance
  • Design for Optimized Storage and Database Performance
  • Identify Performance Bottlenecks
