An Azure Primer for the AWS Solution Architect

Add to calendar

In the past several years, Derek Ashmore and his AWS professional colleagues have had to quickly acquire Azure skills. 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. This presentation will take a pattern approach and contrast the approach we take using AWS with the approach that is taken using Azure. This presentation targets solution architects and DevOps professionals with AWS skills that have a need to quickly acquire Azure skills. Topics such as virtual machines, internet ingress, network security, high availability, backup/recovery, automation tactics, and many more. Attendees will walk away with a basic understanding of Azure concepts and will be on their way to being an Azure professional.
