Overview/Description

In this 14-video course, learners can explore differences between cloud computing and traditional on-premises computing. You will examine AZ-900 Azure Fundamentals, the entry level Microsoft Azure certification that will introduce learners to Azure service offerings, including storage, virtual machines (VMs), databases, and developer solutions. Microsoft Azure lets users leverage the infrastructure of an existing computing environment to reduce, or even in some cases eliminate, on-premises solutions. You will learn that cloud computing depends on virtualization, and hypervisors, the underlying physical server hardware that allows VMs to be deployed and to run. Next, you will examine the components of Microsoft Azure include IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), which is basic computing and storage services such as VMs and network services. You will learn that Azure includes PaaS (Platform as a Service), which is used for application hosting environment solutions such as web hosting, messaging, and database hosting, and SaaS (Software as a Service) with on-demand applications. Finally, the course compares traditional on-premises IT solutions to their cloud equivalents, and compares on-premises to cloud migration strategies.
