About the course

In this course, we’ll explore how you can utilize several services and offerings from Azure to support a hybrid environment. We’ll start by taking a look at what hybrid environments are. Then you’ll learn the benefits and drawbacks of Azure Stack components, how to provide high-speed connectivity with Azure ExpressRoute, why and when to use Azure AD Connect, and how Azure Arc can be used for management.

Upon completion of the course, you will be able to recommend the best Azure solutions for your hybrid environments. You will also have the opportunity to get hands-on experience with Azure Arc.

To be successful in this course, you need at least an intermediate level understanding of Azure and have worked it for roughly 6 months to a year. This course is meant to provide you with an overview of hybrid environments on Azure, so we will not be diving deep into these services or offerings, but rather equipping you with the knowledge to decide on which service to use and when.
