Description

Architecting solutions in the cloud can be intimidating as there are so many compute options. In this course, Design a Compute Strategy for Microsoft Azure, you will gain the ability to identify the optimal compute solution for varying requirements, ensure performance and resiliency for the solution, and understand how different compute options can work together. First, you will learn the VM capabilities of Azure and how to scale. Next, you will discover the container-based services available in Azure, including their orchestration. Finally, you will explore how to leverage the most commonly used Platform as a Service compute options available in Azure. When you’re finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of Azure compute services needed to fully architect an Azure-based solution.

Course Overview
(Music playing) Hi everyone. My name is John Savill, and welcome to my course, Design a Compute Strategy for Microsoft Azure. I'm a principal technical architect at the Dallas Microsoft Technology Center, and Azure has a vast array of compute services, and it can be intimidating trying to learn all the options and choose what is the right service to leverage. In this course, we're going to look at the key Azure compute services, including VMs, containers, and platform as a service offerings. By the end of this course, you'll know how to architect Azure-based solutions using the right compute option. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn all about the compute options in Azure with the Design a Compute Strategy for Microsoft Azure course at Pluralsight.
