Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name Michael Teske, and welcome to my course, Rehosting Workloads to Microsoft Azure. I'm an Author Evangelist at Pluralsight. The cloud is no longer an industry buzzword; it's real. Today, companies both large and small are leveraging cloud services in some capacity. Taking advantage of the resiliency and scalability are major factors, not to mention no longer being at the mercy of hardware refresh schedules or version upgrades. This course is focused on migrating your on-premises workloads, both virtual machines and databases, to Azure. Some of the major topics that we will cover include assessing your on-premises workloads. We'll show you some of the tools used to answer the questions of what needs to be changed before we make the move and, more importantly, what will be our operating expense once we're there. Next, we'll migrate an on-prem VMware workload to Azure. We'll identify all the necessary assets needed and then complete the migration. And then finally, we'll assess your SQL instances and identify their readiness for Azure, and then we'll migrate an instance to an Azure SQL Managed Instance. By the end of this course, you'll be able to rehost your on-premises workloads and databases to Azure. Before beginning this course, you should have a general familiarity with the public cloud, Infrastructure as a Service, Platform as a Service, as well as an intermediate understanding of managing on-premises VMs along with VMware vCenter. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to rehost your workloads with the Rehosting Workloads to Microsoft Azure course, at Pluralsight.
