Description

BRAND NEW COURSE - JUST LAUNCHED

When companies are looking to migrate from servers in their own environment - on premises or hosted - into the cloud, one of the first platforms they look at is the virtual machine (VM) in the cloud. VMs are the easiest way to migrate from on prem to Azure, which is called lift and shift.

In this course, we will look at the following topics:

  • How to create Windows and Linux virtual machines

  • Using the Portal, Powershell and CLI

  • How to choose the VM instance size

  • How to configure disk and networking options

  • How to increase the “availability” of that machine

  • Connecting to the network and the Internet

  • Virtual Machine Security

  • Backup and recovery

  • Reducing cost

The course is a mix of conceptual topics (what is availability), and live demonstrations of creating and managing virtual machine resources in Azure.

Who is this course for?

  • You’re just getting started with Azure, and want to go deep in one particular topic

  • You already know a bit about virtual machines and want to know much more

  • You have a specific task you need to accomplish and you need a quick way to learn how to do it

  • You are just starting to think about migration from another cloud vendor or from a hosted solution

So sign up today to learn more about Azure Virtual Machines.


Who this course is for:
  • Experienced IT Pros who want to get into Azure cloud computing more
  • Beginners looking for a place to start learning Azure, and overwhelmed by a 10-hour course
  • People with a specific VM-related problem that they are looking to solve
