Welcome to this certification course on Microsoft’s AZ-305: Designing Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Solutions.
This course will prepare you to pass your exam and prove your skills in designing, governing, and migrating to reliable, scalable, secure, and performant solutions within Azure. Throughout the course, we’ll learn about the services, features, pricing, and licensing you’ll need to know for the exam, and also how you can apply the knowledge you gain when architecting Azure solutions in the real world.
This course will cover the following domains:
- Design identity, governance, and monitoring solutions
- Design data storage solutions
- Design business continuity solutions
- Design infrastructure solutions
Passing the AZ-305 exam, and gaining your Azure Administrator Associate certification, will allow you to earn your Azure Solutions Architect Expert certification.
While you do not have to have achieved your Azure Administrator Associate certification to sit the AZ-305 exam, it is considered a prerequisite for the expert certification. For this course, you need to already be familiar with deployment, configuration, and implementation of various Azure services. For example, when discussing how to design a compute-based solution in this course, we will consider various compute services, key features, pricing, and when you might use these services. While some time will be spent demonstrating these services, our focus is on key features, and not configuration or administration.
We’ll go through a variety of subtopics in each domain, using previous lessons as part of the foundation for the next topic. You will gain a practical knowledge of how these pieces fit together and how you can design solutions to common problems faced in enterprises today.
You’ll get experience with hands-on labs to solidify your knowledge, and you can look forward to practice questions throughout the course to ensure you’re ready to move on.
So with all of that being said, it’s time to jump in and get started on becoming an Azure Solutions Architect Expert.
