MOD 10992: Integrating On-Premises Core Infrastructure with Microsoft Azure

Description

In this 3-day a range of components will be covered. These components include Azure Compute, Azure Storage, and Network Services that customer is able to benefit from when deploying hybrid solutions.

Included is an overview of Hybrid (integrating infrastructure technologies) that customers host in on-premises datacenters with Azure IaaS and PaaS services. The knowledge needed to design hybrid services properly is gained during this course. It also provides a number of demonstrations and labs that enable students that will enable a student to develop hands-on skills needed when implementing such solutions.

This course was designed for IT and development operations (DevOps) professionals that are well versed in on-premises technologies and have some knowledge of cloud technologies, who want to learn about integrating their on-premises environments with Azure. These professionals should have 3 years of experience working in their respective fields. Such areas as on-premises system administration or network administration, in addition to DevOps support. 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.

Specific IT Professionals that would benefit from this course are:

IT professionals who have used on-premises virtualization technologies, including both Hyper-V and VMware platforms, but who want to deploy, configure and administer servers and virtual machines in Azure.
IT professionals who have used Microsoft System Center to manage and orchestrate within on-premises server infrastructure
Windows and Linux administrators who are looking to evaluate and migrate on-premises workloads and services to the cloud
IT professionals who need to implement network connectivity between on-premises environments and services that Azure or Microsoft Office 365 hosts
IT professionals who want to use Azure to increase the resiliency and agility of their on-premises environments
DevOps personnel who are considering deploying hybrid solutions that consist of both cloud-based and on-premises components
IT professionals and DevOps personnel who are experienced in other non-Microsoft cloud technologies, who meet the course prerequisites, and who are looking to cross-train on Azure
Once an IT professional has completed this course, they will be able to:

Describe the core concepts of Azure
Explain the primary methods for integrating an on-premises environment with Azure Virtual Machines and Azure Cloud Services
Describe Azure hybrid networking technologies
Describe the Azure services that provide data storage, management, and analytics capabilities in hybrid scenarios
Explain the use of Azure disaster recovery and business continuity solutions for on-premises environments
Explain how to design and implement cross-premises applications
Describe Azure monitoring and management solutions that offer hybrid capabilities
