Maybe your company has decided to move to the Cloud and you need to know what Azure is and how to create resources, or maybe you want to learn Azure so you can add it to your resume. Either way, this short course will explain what Azure is, the difference between PaaS and IaaS, and how to create resources in Azure.
Why You Should Watch
This simple step-by-step class will teach you the basics of Cloud services and provide a solid foundation of knowledge to build on. Given the amount of services available on Azure, it would be impossible to learn each one with just one class, so this course covers the basics of storage, networking, virtual machines, SQL databases, and web apps. Through the discussion of these 5 topics, we can effectively demonstrate how Azure works and how to set up different services in Azure.
What You'll learn
After viewing Overview of Microsoft Azure, you will have a basic understanding of Azure and its abilities, and be better prepared for the Azure exams.
