About this course

This course provides an in-depth discussion and practical hands-on training of Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Services (IaaS) including Azure Virtual Machines, Storage, Virtual Networking, Azure Active Directory and deployment options.  This training is designed to relate IaaS technologies used in Amazon Web Services (AWS) to those used in Microsoft Azure.

 

Audience profile

The audience profile is IT Professionals, and Enterprise Architects with cloud computing experience using Amazon Web Services. However, this course focuses on providing a basis for understanding and working hands-on with Azure IaaS services, so prior knowledge of AWS is not a requirement for learning those services.
