Microsoft Azure for AWS Experts
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.
Who Should Attend
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.
After completing this course, students will be able to:
- Implementing and managing Virtual Machines and Storage
- Implementing and managing Azure Virtual Networking
- Implementing and managing Azure Resource Manager and Resource Groups
- Implementing and managing Azure Active Directory
- Comparing Microsoft Azure and AWS features and services
- Azure AD fundamentals
