Microsoft Azure Compute Services Deep-Dive

Duration: 2 days

About this workshop

This workshop focuses on the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) computing infrastructure: –

  • Assess on-premises environment for virtual machine readiness in preparation for moving resources to the cloud, including sizing, pricing, and design considerations.
  • Create and deploy virtual machines in Azure
  • ARM templates and Infrastructure as a Code
  • Upload and deploy custom images
  • Design and implement highly available virtual machines with Availability Sets and Scale-Sets.
  • Monitoring virtual machines.
  • Compute disaster recovery with Azure Backup
  • Migrating on-premise workloads to Azure using Azure Site Recovery.
  • ·Failover compute resources from either on-premises to Azure or between two Azure Regions
