Passing the AZ-203 exam - Part 1

Develop Azure Infrastructure as a Service Solutions

Welcome to Part 1 of the AZ-203 study guide. In this post we'll cover:

Azure Batch

Azure Batch lets you run large scale parallel and high-performant computing (HPC) jobs. Okay, that was a mouthful. All you need to know are the CLI commands to create jobs, their tasks and a pool.

az batch pool create 
    --id "my-pool-name" 
    --vm-size Standard_A1_v2 
    --target-dedicated-nodes 2
    --image canonical: ubuntuserver:16.04 LTS
    --node-agent-sku-id "batch.node.ubuntu.16.04"
az batch job create 
    --id "my-job"
    --pool-id "my-pool-name"
az batch task create 
    --task-id "my-task"
    --job-id "my-job"
    --command-line "echo 'I am the task running...'"

Containerized Solutions

You might be asked the structure of a Dockerfile, so remember this flow:


Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)

az aks create 
    -g "my-resource-group-name"
    - n "my-cluster"
    --node-count 1
