AZ-120: Planning and Administering Microsoft Azure for SAP Workloads AZ-120: Planning and Administering Microsoft Azure for SAP Workloads

Course description

This course teaches IT professionals with experience in SAP solutions how to take advantage of Azure resources including the deployment and configuration of virtual machines, virtual networks, storage accounts, and Azure AD including the implementation and management of hybrid identities . Students in this course will learn through concepts, scenarios, procedures, and hands-on labs how to better plan and implement the migration and operation of an SAP solution on Azure. You will receive instructions on subscriptions, create and scale virtual machines, implement storage solutions, configure virtual networks, back up and share data, connect Azure and on-premises sites, manage network traffic, implement Azure Active Directory, protect identities and will supervise the solution.

 

Public profile

This course is intended for Azure administrators migrating and managing SAP solutions on Azure. Azure administrators manage cloud services spanning storage, networking, and cloud computing functions, with deep understanding of each service throughout the IT lifecycle. They take end-user requests for new cloud applications and make recommendations on which services to use for optimal performance and scale, and provision, scale, monitor, and tune as appropriate. This role requires communicating and coordinating with vendors. Azure administrators use the Azure portal, and as they become more proficient, use PowerShell and the command line interface.
