In this 5-day, class, your team will learn Azure Infrastructure as a Service in an immersive hands-on training environment. Students will learn advanced concepts and best practices for operating in the cloud.
Topics will include configuring and setting up landing zones for your Azure environment, architecting for performance and resiliency with virtual machines and scale sets, as well as learning how to configure monitoring and alerts.
The Azure IaaS Mastery Bootcamp is designed for IT professionals that have introductory to moderate experience with Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) using Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform or Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Prior experience with scripting using PowerShell or Bash is suggested.
Challenge Based Projects
The last 2 days of the class students can participate in one of two hands-on projects in an isolated Azure environment (included with the class) to give students practical immersive experience.
- Hands-on labs
- Whiteboard Design
- Challenge based skills.
