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

By far the most competitve price we found, which included exam vouchers, hands on labs, practice test and a true Master of Cyber Security concepts as our Instructor. Franklin Mesa was the best trainer I have ever had and i walked out certified on the last day of my CompTIA Security+ certification bootcamp.

The Academy is one of the best educational values for today's job market.  I studied hard and got certified (A+ and N+).  Even though I had no prior IT experience, I now have a good job replacing obsolete computers in hospitals throughout the country.  At my job interview, I just slid my test scores and certification across the table to the interviewer, who is now my boss.  I was hired the next day.  

Not bad for a 65 year old.
