Microsoft Cloud Workshop: Optimized Architecture (40520G)

In this workshop, you will learn how to optimize a lift-and-shift style Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) architecture in Azure to improve cost savings. You will also compare IaaS and PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) hosting options to save cost even further using Azure App Service. Additionally, you will learn to improve resiliency and high availability through multi-region deployment.
Audience Profile
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 Course’ and ‘At Course 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.
At Course Completion
At the end of this workshop, you will be better able to design and implement a plan to optimize Azure IaaS and PaaS deployments, compare costs between Azure IaaS versus Azure PaaS, setup SQL Database geo-replication, and configure multi-region deployments.
