IL - Architecting Azure IaaS and Hybrid Solutions

Course Overview

The Azure IaaS and Hybrid Architect workshop is designed to prepare the architect to design solutions with Microsoft Azure. This workshop is focused on designing solutions using Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and other technologies to enable hybrid solutions such as data center connectivity, hybrid applications, and other hybrid use cases such as business continuity with backup and high availability. Individual case studies will focus on specific real-world problems that represent common IaaS and Hybrid scenarios and practices. Students will also experience several hands-on labs to introduce them to some of the key services available.
