Linux Server now powers 25 percent of Microsoft Azure. Enterprises continue to migrate to Microsoft’s public cloud offering, fuelling demand for IT pros with the skills to administer and manage Linux Server within Azure.
On this accelerated 5 day MCSA: Linux on Azure course you’ll learn to create, manage and maintain your advanced Linux solutions on the Microsoft Azure platform. This course is a collaboration between Microsoft and the Linux Foundation, so you’ll be covering courseware from both.
You’ll prove your skills as a Linux systems administrator whilst learning advanced skills that will allow you to bring your Linux systems into the modern, cloud-centric environment. Firebrand is a Microsoft Gold Learning Partner, so you’ll benefit from Microsoft Official Curriculum and Microsoft Certified Trainers. You’ll become skilled at working with both Microsoft Azure and Linux through modules like:
This certification brings together two industry leading technologies helping you reap the benefits of both Linux Server and the Microsoft Azure platform.
After passing this course, you'll have achieved three certifications in total.
