This Microsoft Professional Orientation - Cloud Administration Certificate is part of the Microsoft Professional Program in Cloud Administration from EdX in partnership with MicrosoftX.
This is the first stop in Microsoft’s Cloud Administration curriculum. It will help you get started, plan your learning schedule, and connect with fellow students and teaching assistants.
Along the way, you’ll be introduced to working with Azure cloud technologies. As you’re introduced to the different parts of the curriculum, you’ll get a feel for how Azure’s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering is organized into compute, networking, and storage pillars. And how Platform as a Service (PaaS) service capabilities can be built on top of the infrastructure.
Understanding these pillars is going to help you in basic deployment and management operations. In addition to being able to provision compute, networking, and storage resources, you’ll learn how to scale workloads efficiently and to automate application management tasks and other important administrative functions like security, back up, replication, and migration from an on-premises environment to the cloud.
While Azure as a cloud platform is large in scope, by the end of this course, you should have a good sense of how the individual courses in the curriculum map to the platform and fit within the Azure cloud administrator role.
4 weeks, 2 to 4 hours per week
