About the course

As a cloud professional, it’s becoming increasingly valuable to have knowledge, skills, and experience across multiple cloud vendors. Being cloud-agnostic is beneficial to professionals in the cloud space.

In this course, we gain experience in Azure core services and compare them to similar AWS services. The services covered in this course include Azure AD, Azure Virtual Machine (VM), Azure VNet, and Azure Blob Storage.

To be successful in this course, we expect students to have some experience with AWS core services, such as AWS IAM, Amazon EC2, Amazon VPC, and Amazon S3. If you do not have experience with AWS, then we suggest reviewing our AWS related courses. By the end of this course, you will have a deeper understanding of these core Azure services.
