Description

This learning path is designed to help you and your team prepare for the AZ-301 Microsoft Azure Architect Design exam. If you pass both of the AZ-300 and AZ-301 exams, then you will earn the Microsoft Azure Solutions Architect Expert certification.

The AZ-300 and AZ-301 exams replace the older 70-535 exam, which was retired on December 31, 2018. These two exams are part of Microsoft’s new role-based certification program. Candidates who pass both exams will earn the Microsoft Certified: Azure Solutions Architect Expert certification.

The AZ-301 exam tests your knowledge of six subject areas. Here’s how we’ll cover them in this learning path. We’ll start with determining workload requirements. Next, we’ll show you how to design for identity and security using Azure Active Directory. After that, you’ll learn how to design a data platform solution. Then, you’ll find out how to design a business continuity strategy using services such as Azure Site Recovery. Next, you’ll see how to design for deployment, migration, and integration. Finally, we’ll cover how to design an infrastructure strategy.
