Course Overview
Hi everyone, Steve Buchanan here, and welcome to my course, Microsoft Azure Pricing and Support Options. I am a Microsoft Azure MVP, and I'm also a cloud architect. This course will teach you the fundamental knowledge needed to understand the pricing and support options that are within Azure. This course will also help you prepare for the AZ‑900 exam if that is something you are working towards. In this course, we are going to explore Azure pricing and support so you will know how to estimate Azure costs and plan for the proper support of your environment. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include understanding Azure subscriptions and management groups, understanding how to plan and manage costs in Azure, Azure service level agreements and how they apply in Azure across services, and how Azure lifecycles work. By the end of this course, you'll have a better understanding of the pricing and support options that are available within Azure. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with selling or purchasing of cloud‑based solutions, somewhat familiar with cloud technology, IT infrastructure, and know some development. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about Azure pricing and support options in this Azure course at Pluralsight.
