About this course

This course will be covering Azure Compute, Azure Storage, and network services from which customers can be benefitted from while the deployment of hybrid solutions. Here hybrid means integration of infrastructure technologies which customers are hosting on-premises datacenters with Azure IaaS and PaaS services. This course offers knowledge necessary for designing hybrid solutions. The course also provides labs which enable a student to develop hands-on skills necessary for implementing such solutions.

Audience profile

This course is designed for technicals and (DevOps) professionals who are familiar with on-premises technologies and have knowledge of cloud technologies but intends to learn the integration of on-premises environments with Azure. they should have at least three years of hands-on experience in respective fields—like on-premises system administration or network administration and DevOps support. the intended audience includes:

  • Students who used on-premises virtualization technologies, it could be Hyper-V or VMware platforms, and now wants to do the deployment, configuration, and administration of services and virtual machines in Azure.
  • Students having experience with Microsoft System Center for managing and orchestrating an on-premises server infrastructure.
  • Windows and Linux administrators looking for evaluating and migrating on-premises workloads and services to the cloud.
  • Students who want to implement network connectivity between on-premises environments and services that are hosted by Azure or Microsoft Office 365.
  • Professionals with the intention to use Azure for increasing resiliency and agility of on-premises environments.
  • DevOps personnel who wants to consider deployment of hybrid solutions consisting of both cloud-based and on-premises components.
