Course Description

V2.2 August 2018 Updates. Adding Hands-On Labs. Added 1 hour of new content on Azure Databases.

Microsoft Azure is a skill in high demand in today's large business marketplace.

  • According to Microsoft, Azure is being used by 85% of the Fortune 500 companies, particularly with their hot Office 365 suite
  • Use of Azure has grown 90% year-over-year
  • Salary survey sites report that Azure Architects earn US$130,000 to US$170,000 per year across the United States
  • Microsoft has more than 100 data centers, across 33 regions and 10 geos, making it one of the largest data centers in the world.

Microsoft has 3 certification tests around Azure, and 4 certifications. This course is the complete study preparation course for 70-535: Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions. Passing this test gives you the "Microsoft Specialist: Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions" certification.

I'm quite confident that this is the most complete training course targeted specifically at the exam. Microsoft doesn't even have any official training available at this time.

While the technology world is full of "buzzwords" and "flavors of the month", the cloud is a real paradigm shift in the way solutions are designed and architected. There are now so many reasons why you should include Azure cloud technology in your solutions design that there are almost no reasons why not to do it. 

Cost savings is the one that catches the attention of businesses. Some companies are spending millions of dollars per month of their IT infrastructure, and every few years that hardware needs to be repaired and upgraded. Being able to reduce the capital investment and essentially rent powerful equipment on demand is quite a lot of up front savings.

If you add in the scalability, flexibility, and worldwide reach of the cloud, and the technology group sees the potential as well. You can truly do more with less. 

This course goes through all of the requirements of the Microsoft exam 70-535: Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions. Multiple videos are devoted to each sub-objective, and we cover the topic thoroughly.

Most of the courses and content you find online assumes you already have expert knowledge of Azure and just tells you what to study, spending only seconds covering entire objectives. I can confidently say this course goes deep on everything you need to know.

If you ARE already an expert at many Azure topics, you can easily skip the sections that you already know and focus on the ones you have not yet had much exposure too. This is the benefit of having the complete course.

Each section has additional web-based resources for you to do further research and expand your knowledge beyond the requirements of the exam.
