An Azure Primer for the AWS Solution Architect

Transitioning from AWS to Azure is more difficult than just translating terms and patterns. The Azure approach is different and requires a paradigm shift in some cases. Derek Ashmore will contrast the approach to using AWS with the approach to using Azure. Solution architects and DevOps professionals with AWS skills who need to quickly acquire Azure skills will get significant value from learning about this pattern approach. We'll discuss virtual machines, internet ingress, network security, high availability, backup and recovery, automation tactics, and more. You'll walk away with a basic understanding of Azure concepts and be well on your way toward becoming an Azure professional.
