Description

If you're a virtualization administrator for VMware vSphere, you're used to managing, administering, and the entire computing model surrounding VMware's virtual machines. You probably also agree that it's a great method of operations for a lot of VM workloads. But, today's advancements in technology have evolved to where cloud-based execution of VM workloads is an operating model businesses can no longer ignore. In this course, Introducing Microsoft Azure VMs for VMware vSphere Administrators, you'll explore some of the comparisons between the Microsoft Azure experience and what you're used to seeing in VMware vSphere. First, you'll learn how to manage some of the everyday virtual machine tasks in the Microsoft Azure Portal. Next, you'll dig into the migration activity, moving vSphere VMs into Microsoft Azure. Finally, you'll discover Azure's PaaS services that go beyond traditional VMs. By the end of this course, you'll have the necessary knowledge to extend your VMware vSphere on-premises infrastructure into the cloud.

Course Overview
Hey, this is Greg Shields, and you found my course on Introducing Microsoft Azure VMs for VMware vSphere Administrators. I am author evangelist and a full-time author here at Pluralsight, and I've been working with virtualization and cloud technologies for both companies since the beginning. If you're a virtualization administrator for VMware vSphere, you're used to managing, administering, and the entire computing model surrounding VMware's virtual machines. And you probably agree that it's a great method of operations for a lot of VM workloads. But today's advancements in technology have evolved to where cloud-based execution of VM workloads is an operating model businesses can no longer ignore. While running VMs on-premises is still a good idea for many situations, running other types of VM workloads in the cloud offers significant advantages. In this course we'll explore some of the comparisons between the Microsoft Azure experience and what you're used to seeing in VMware vSphere. We'll manage some of the everyday virtual machine tasks in the Microsoft Azure portal, we'll dig into the migration activity, moving VMware VMs into Microsoft Azure, and you'll leave with some extra discovery into Azure's PaaS services, Platform as a Service, that go beyond traditional virtual machines. If you've just been tasked with extending your VMware vSphere on-premises infrastructure into the cloud, this course is your next stop in brushing up on those skills for success. And then from here, you'll be ready to create your subscription, and begin digging deeper into the cloud-based computing model that Azure enables. Let's get started.
