Description

This learning path is designed to help you become an Azure Solution Architect. These courses and hands-on labs will help you gain a solid understanding of how to architect a variety of Azure services.

We’ll start with designing, implementing, and monitoring Azure infrastructure. We'll cover a wide variety of topics, starting with compute services, such as virtual machines, Azure App Service, and Azure Kubernetes Service. Then we'll go through various storage and data services, such as Azure Storage, Azure SQL Database, and Cosmos DB. Next, we'll cover the ins and outs of networking on Azure, including virtual networks, Azure Load Balancer, and Azure Network Watcher. After that, you'll learn how to keep your Azure implementation secure using services such as Azure Active Directory, role-based access control, and Azure Key Vault. Next, we’ll show you how to manage your Azure infrastructure using services such as Azure Monitor and Azure Resource Manager.
