MS-WS-050T00 - Migrating Application Workloads to Azure

This workshop teaches IT Professionals how to migrate existing on-premises workloads and assets to the cloud, specifically to the Microsoft Azure platform. Students learn how to assess and evaluate an existing on-premises environment in preparation for a cloud migration. Students also learn how to monitor and optimize their Azure-based workloads to maximize return on investment (ROI), and use Azure services to protect and manage your virtual machines, applications, and data.
Audience profile
This workshop is for IT Administrators and staff who need to plan, implement and manage migrations of on-premises resources to Azure, or to replicate Azure virtual machines to other Azure locations. They take business requests from workload owners to migrate workloads to the cloud in order to take advantage of the benefits that a cloud-enabled strategy provides over a traditional datacenter approach. This role requires communicating and coordinating with different individuals within an organization’s IT department and business groups, as well as vendors.
At course completion
After completing this course, students will be able to:
Identify the tools and services specific to each phase of the migration.
Identify the tools and services specific to each phase of the migration
Discover and assess on-premises workloads for migration to Azure
Obtain deeper profiling of an environment using app dependency mapping and assessment customizations
Perform an end-to-end migration of on-premises workloads to Azure using Azure Migrate
Replicate data from an on-premises datacenter to Azure or to a secondary site
Migrate data from existing data sources to Azure data platforms using the Database Migration Service
Secure and manage migrated workloads using Azure Security Center, Azure Backup, and Log Analytics
Ensure an effective business continuity strategy that includes high availability, disaster recovery
Back up and protect Azure IaaS virtual machines from any location using the Azure Backup Service
Define a recovery plan to ensure virtual machines fail over properly before running a full failover
