In this workshop, you will work with a media publishing company to design a hybrid cloud disaster recovery solution. You will design the solution to handle large spikes in load and harden the security to include encryption of Payment Card Industry (PCI) data. Additionally, you will implement an archival strategy to keep databases sizes in check.
This course has been retired on 30 September 2021.
Who should attend
This workshop is intended for Cloud Architects and IT professionals who have architectural expertise of infrastructure and solutions design in cloud technologies and want to learn more about Azure and Azure services as described in the "Summary" and "Skills gained" areas. Those attending this workshop should also be experienced in other non-Microsoft cloud technologies, meet the course prerequisites, and want to cross-train on Azure.
At the end of this workshop, you will be better able to design a hybrid disaster recovery solution between an on-premises VMWare environment and Azure. In addition, you will design a SQL Server scale-out solution, protect database backups from local failures, archive cold data from an on-premises SQL Server, and perform end-to-end encryption on sensitive application data.
