This course teaches Solutions Architects how to translate business requirements into secure, scalable, and reliable solutions. Lessons include virtualization, automation, networking, storage, identity, security, data platform, and application infrastructure. This course outlines how decisions in each theses area affects an overall solution.

Topics include: implementing VMs for Windows and Linux, managing workloads in Azure, configuring and managing Azure Active Directory, load balancing, network security, storage account, Azure governance, hybrid identities, application infrastructure, and managing container-based applications.

Students will learn through a mix of live demonstrations and hands-on lab activities.

Because this course is the first course in the series for the Azure Solutions Architect exams, there is a sizeable amount of introductory content presented to prepare students for the remaining courses in the curriculum. Students are provided with a lesson that covers tips and tricks for working in the Azure portal, as well as an introduction to key tools used in the Azure environment, such as the Cloud Shell and Resource Explorer. Some emphasis is focused on the command line interface (CLI) as important skills to acquire not only in preparation for the exam but for the job role itself.

Ruben was very energetic in presenting the course material which kept our attention. Thanks!

The learning format is great and allows one to still keep up with daily work activities.

The software installation instructions needs to be more clear. We spent a lot time on installing and setting up the environment.

This is my second course with ExitCertified. This course exceeded my expectations. The teacher was great and the class was fun.

Exactly what we needed for our organization, at the right time, at the right price. We'll be back!
