Integrating On-Premises Core Infrastructure with Microsoft Azure (10992B)

Description

During this 3-day instructor-led course, 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.

This course was designed for IT professionals and development operations (DevOps) professionals that are well versed in on-premises technologies and who have some knowledge of cloud technologies, who 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. Such areas as on-premises system administration or network administration, in addition to DevOps support. These IT professionals have a broadly applicable administration and operational skills, and they generally work for both enterprise-level organizations and small and medium business environments.
