About this course

Whether solving for hardware obsolescence cycles, quicker time to market, or enabling disaster recovery, organizations should consider moving some on premises resources to the cloud. This course will show you why migrating certain workloads to Azure just might make sense.

Applications developed specifically for the cloud can readily capitalize on the advantages of the cloud and the agility it brings. However, many solutions originally developed for an on-premises scenario, can also benefit from the cloud. 

This course will introduce you to different migration scenarios including when a migration should be rebuilt in Azure and migration limitations. 

You’ll also learn how to ensure the resources you want to migrate do not have any unsupported features or configurations. As well as how to validate, prepare, check and then commit to a migration workflow. 

This course focuses on how to configure the Azure platform for your migration. You will learn how to choose and configure the correct storage account and Azure virtual network. 

In addition to the different deployment models, scenarios, and requirements for migrating, and replicating resources to Azure, you’ll learn about Azure Site Recovery (ASR) as the Business Continuity Disaster Recovery solution.

What you'll learn

  • Distinguish between different migration scenarios and understand when a migration needs to be rebuilt in Azure. 
  • Properly plan a migration to ensure resources being migrated can be supported in Azure.
  • How to choose and configure the correct storage account and Azure virtual network.
  • Ensure workloads are safe and recoverable through replication from on-premises servers, using Azure Site Recovery (ASR).
