This 3-day instructor-led course covers a range of components, including Azure Compute, Azure Storage, and network services that customers can benefit from when deploying hybrid solutions. In this context, the term hybrid means integrating infrastructure technologies that customers host in on-premises datacenters with Azure IaaS and PaaS services. This course offers an overview of these services, providing the knowledge necessary to design hybrid solutions properly. It also includes a number of demonstrations and labs that enable students to develop hands-on skills that are necessary when implementing such solutions.
Participants who wish to take up this course should meet the following prerequisites:
- An understanding of on-premises virtualization technologies, including virtual machines, virtual networking, and virtual hard disks
- An understanding of network configuration, including TCP/IP, Domain Name System (DNS), VPNs, firewalls, and encryption technologies.
- An understanding of web applications, including creating, configuring, monitoring, and deploying web applications on Internet Information Services (IIS)
- An understanding of Active Directory concepts, including domains, forests, domain controllers, replication the Kerberos protocol, and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
- Knowledge of Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2016 fundamentals
- Knowledge of Windows PowerShell command-line interface basics
- Knowledge of cloud computing basics
Who Should Attend?
This course is intended for IT professionals and development operations (DevOps) professionals who are well versed in on-premises technologies and who have some knowledge of cloud technologies but want to learn more about integrating their on-premises environments with Azure.
These professionals should have at least three years of experience working in their respective fields—typically, in the areas of on-premises system administration or network administration, in addition to DevOps support. These IT professionals have broadly applicable administration and operational skills, and they generally work for both enterprise-level organizations and small and medium business environments.
