This four-day instructor led course will provide delegates with the knowledge and skills to migrate data to Azure and then use Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) solutions to continue their journey into Azure.
Delegates will learn how to assess their current IT infrastructure and then migrate data from on-premises into Azure. They will also learn how to use tools in Azure to facilitate everything they do, including the cloud shell, compute gallery and extensions. Delegates will learn how to build resources including virtual machines, storage accounts and apps, and then learn how to successfully monitor these resources, including setting up alerts and actions to be taken for problems within their resources.
This course was designed for people who work in an Azure security administrator job role or a general purpose administrator role with a responsibility to ensure that after migrating to Azure, they know how to use the tools that are available.
Instructors will demonstrate features throughout the event. Lab exercises will be given to students to complete using a time-limited subscription.
