“Our goal is to help IT leadership prepare their organizations to meet the challenges of running their business IT services in the Microsoft cloud. With the breadth of services and capabilities available it’s a huge challenge to identify where to even get started, much less acquire the advanced skills necessary to truly take advantage of the cloud. We think the breadth of courses and learning paths are a great first step for a company to take on their cloud journey.” said Michael Washam, Opsgility CEO.

In the past 6 months we have taught over 7,500 students worldwide our Microsoft Azure Infrastructure as a Service Training. The widespread adoption of Azure is clearly accelerating into more advanced workloads.
To manage these workloads and to start implementing Azure at scale a new set of skills are needed.
These involve planning for Azure Governance – to ensure that you still have control over your data center, even if it does happen to reside in the cloud. Another key skill is advanced networking. Efficient routing and configuration of virtual firewalls to protect your workloads is critical as more important as sensitive workloads make their way into Azure. Other important skills are hybrid management and monitoring as well as implementing a dependable and understandable plan for business continuity.
With these goals in mind, the experts here at Opsgility have developed the next wave of Azure training to take your infrastructure teams to the next level. We call it the: “Azure Advanced Datacenter Boot camp”.
