This learning path is designed to help you prepare for the AZ-304 Microsoft Azure Architect Design exam. If you pass both of the AZ-303 and AZ-304 exams, then you will earn the Microsoft Azure Solutions Architect Expert certification.

The AZ-303 and AZ-304 exams replace the older AZ-300 and AZ-301 exams, which will retire on September 30, 2020. These two exams are part of Microsoft’s role-based certification program. Candidates who pass both exams will earn the Microsoft Certified: Azure Solutions Architect Expert certification.

The AZ-304 exam tests your knowledge of five subject areas. Here’s how we’ll cover them in this learning path. We’ll start with designing Azure monitoring. 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 storage solution. Then, you’ll find out how to design a business continuity strategy using services such as Azure Site Recovery. Finally, we’ll cover how to design infrastructure.
