Description

AWS and Azure both have a large number of services and often there are equivalent services between the clouds. It can be difficult as an architect looking at a new cloud to identify which solutions should be used based on your existing knowledge. In this course, Microsoft Azure Architecture for AWS Architects, you'll learn how to utilize your existing skill set to enable you to architect solutions in Microsoft Azure. First, you'll discover which solutions to use in Azure, based on AWS utilization. Next, you'll explore the key technologies around compute, storage, network, data, and identity. Finally, you'll learn how to utilize a hybrid cloud with Azure. By the end of this course, you'll have the necessary knowledge to start building solutions on the Azure cloud.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is John Savill, and welcome to my course, Microsoft Azure Architecture for AWS Architects. I'm a principal technical architect at the Dallas Microsoft Technology Center. Now for AWS architects looking to leverage Microsoft Azure, it can be very difficult to translate existing architecture knowledge to what is a brand-new cloud. Now in this course, we're going look at how to map those AWS capabilities you already know how to architect to Microsoft Azure capabilities, along with the key points in their utilization. By the end of this course, you'll be able to utilize your existing skill set to architect solutions in Microsoft Azure without having to relearn everything from scratch.

Azure Compute Models
In this module, we're going to talk about the Azure compute models. Specifically, diving into the types of service availability option, and then technologies around virtual machines, how I can handle scaling and templates, a look at container services, then application services moving all the way to serverless computing options.

Azure Storage Models
This module covers Azure Storage Models. This is going to include the basic storage services available, using managed disks, what are the file sharing capabilities, the various caching and media services available, and then import/export services.

Azure Network Models
Welcome to the Azure Network Models module. In this module, we're going to dive into exactly what are the virtual network capabilities, how I can control access to my network and even between resources within a network, load balancing options, and connectivity.

Azure Security Models
In this module, I want to talk about the Azure Security Models, specifically directory services that house the identities I'm use in Azure, federation options, how I can leverage role-based access control, and then getting a view into what's happening with the Azure Security Center.

Azure Database Models
In this module, I'm going to talk about the Azure Database Models. This will include relational databases, NoSQL solutions, and the caching capabilities.

On-premises Cloud
In this module, I want to look at the on-premises cloud options, specifically the hybrid cloud and then Microsoft Azure Stack.

Rethinking Architecture
In this module, I want to really look at rethinking architecture. And really, all I want to cover is how I can re-examine the requirements and what the right architecture might be.
