Course Overview
Hi everyone! My name is John Savill, and welcome to my course, Providing Disaster Recovery with Azure Services. I'm a technical architect working with many of the largest companies in the world to help them with infrastructure-related projects both on-premises, in the cloud, and a bit of both. Every company today sees their IT services becoming ever more critical to the running of the organization, and they must implement processes to ensure those services run in the most severe datacenter outages. Disaster recovery encompasses the facilities and processes to keep an organization running, and many companies today are looking to leverage Azure for that disaster recovery as a comprehensive and cost-efficient solution due to its consumption-based foundation. In this course, we're going to dive into all of the elements related to using Azure for disaster recovery and how to protect the services running in Azure. Some of the major topics we'll cover include a review of key disaster recovery principles, understanding and using Azure Site Recovery, making sure Azure services themselves are resilient, using Azure Backup for off-site and long-term attention. By the end of this course, you'll be able to protect your services by using Azure. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with cloud basics. However, I'll be sure to quickly review any critical information. But, ideally, you should have completed the Azure Storage, Azure Networking, and Azure IaaS courses that precede this course in the Azure Infrastructure Skills path. I hope you'll join me to learn how to enable DR for your organization with the Providing Disaster Recovery with Azure Services course at Pluralsight.
