Overview:

This course covers a variety of components from which customers can benefit when deploying hybrid solutions, including Azure Compute, Azure Storage, and network services. By “hybrid”, we mean the integration of infrastructure technologies that customers host in on-premises data centers with Azure IaaS and PaaS services.

On this course, students will:

  • Receive an overview of these services

  • Gain the knowledge necessary to design hybrid solutions properly

  • Complete demonstrations and labs to develop hands-on skills for implementing these solutions

This course is also available in the On-Demand delivery format with digital Microsoft Official Courseware (dMOC)

+ Who Should Attend

Course 10992 is designed for IT and development operations professionals with considerable experience in on-premises technologies and a working knowledge of cloud technologies. These professionals should be looking to learn more about integrating their on-premises environments with Azure. Students can be working for both small-medium businesses, or enterprise-level organisations.

Module 2: Integrating with Azure Compute Services

This module explores the different compute resources available in Azure in the context of hybrid scenarios. It first explains the differences between Azure virtual machines and Azure cloud services and how you can use each of them to migrate on-premises workloads. Next, it describes the process of migrating on-premises virtual machines to Azure by using virtual machine images and disks. It also explains the process of extending Big Compute workloads to Azure by integrating them with on-premises high performance computing (HPC) deployments and by using Azure Batch. The module concludes with an explanation on containers and Azure Service Fabric.

  • Configure cross-premises connectivity with Azure virtual networks.

Module 4: Integrating with Azure Storage and data services

This module starts with a description of Azure Storage types and their capabilities. It then describes Azure Backup, StorSimple hybrid storage solution, Microsoft SQL Server Stretch Database, Azure Data Factory with Data Management Gateway, and Azure Content Delivery Network. It concludes with a detailed walkthrough of the implementation of Azure Recovery Services agent-based and Microsoft Azure Backup Server-based backups.

Lessons

  • Overview of Azure Storage and data services
  • Implementing Azure Backup for on-premises workloads

Lab: Implementing the Azure Recovery Services agent-based backups
