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.
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.
