Microsoft Azure for AWS Experts (Amazon Web Services) (40390)

COURSE OVERVIEW

This 3-day instructor-led course provides an in-depth discussion and practical hands-on training of Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Services (IaaS) including Azure Virtual Machines, Storage, Virtual Networking, and deployment options. In addition to practical, hands-on training, the student will participate in several architecture design sessions to help them prepare for real world scenarios. This training is specifically designed to relate technologies and scenarios used in AWS to those used in Microsoft Azure.

AUDIENCE

IT Professionals, Developers, and Enterprise Architects with cloud computing experience using Amazon Web Services

COURSE OUTLINE

Module 1: Introduction to Azure The student will learn core knowledge of Microsoft Azure, including how the Global Foundation Services are used and at a high level view of the architecture behind the scenes. Additionally, students will learn the basics of subscription management and managing access to subscriptions.

Introduction to Azure
Accessing azure
Azure availability
Mapping Azure Terminology to Amazon Web Services
Subscription planning
Pricing and Licensing Virtual Machines
After completing this module, you will be able to:

Understand the core knowledge of Microsoft Azure
Understand the basics of subscription management and how to manage access to subscriptions.

Module 2: Azure Virtual Machines The student will learn a solid foundation on Microsoft Azure Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and specifically focus on virtual machines and virtual networks and their underlying architecture and capabilities. Topics such as monitoring, automation and configuration management will be covered. The next generation of Azure IaaS (Azure Resource Manager) will also be discussed with an introduction to template authoring and automation for automated deployments of infrastructure.

Module 3: Azure Networking The student will learn about core virtual machine networking capabilities of virtual machines. Topics will include architecture concepts for “Classic” mode such as cloud services and affinity groups as well as new Azure Resource Manager architecture concepts. IP address management for both architectures are discussed as well as core networking topics such as: enabling IP traffic by port, load balancing, access control lists, network security groups, and user defined routing with multiple NICs. Hybrid connectivity options such as site-to-site, point-to-site, and ExpressRoute will also be explored.
