Workshop 40513 – Microsoft Cloud Workshop: Building a Resilient IaaS Architecture
About this workshop
Evaluate a large organization’s current infrastructure deployments in Azure and identify single points of failure. Attention will be given to making the customer’s current deployments more resilient and communicating best practices to ensure future deployments will follow best practices.
This workshop is intended for Cloud Architects and IT professionals who have architectural expertise of infrastructure and solutions design in cloud technologies and want to learn more about Azure and Azure services as described in the About this Workshop and At Workshop Completion areas. Those attending this workshop should also be experienced in other non-Microsoft cloud technologies, meet the course prerequisites, and want to cross-train on Azure.
