Live-Environment-Challenge: QUIZ: Azure Concepts


Cloud services have redefined the IT world. The major players in IaaS (Infrastructure as a service) have emerged as Amazon, Microsoft and Google.

These three cloud services share many features, but they also each possess their own strengths. Our course will cover the basic concepts you need to learn to have a frame of reference to build your knowledge of Azure.

In this course we will cover the basics of cloud services, the core components of the Azure flavor of cloud, and a few basic examples of how companies are using Azure today.

By the end of the course you will be able to name the core services offered by Azure, explain why companies commonly choose to use cloud services, and why companies specifically decide to use Azure.

If you find you don't quite understand something, that's okay. These skills take years to build, for now you only need to be familar with the sound of these new words and their basic concepts.

Congratulations on starting down a new path. These cloud services form the backbone of the way our information dependent world works. Even if your interest in the subject is passing you should find the knowledge gained here valuable. And it will give you insight into how much goes into giving users information on-demand.
