Microsoft Azure for Amazon AWS Cloud Professionals

Now that I know AWS really well, i’ve started to learn Azure.

This is a brilliant free training from Keith Mayer at Microsoft.

Part 1 Getting started
Part 2 Networking
Part 3 Storage
Part 4 Virtual Machines, VM Scale Sets & Containers
Part 5 Migrating to Azure

With Availability Sets you don’t need to specify in which “Availability Zone or DataCenter” that the VM’s will be based in. The Azure fabric will manage that for you.

Another nice feature with Azure, which is well worth mentioning, is that Azure cores are not Hyper-Threaded. So when your doing migrations from HT cores to Azure, you need to bear this in mind.

Azure uses a VNet instead of a VPC – Virtual Private Cloud.

Azure has 2 types of load balancers as opposed to AWS, which only has ELB for both internal and internet traffic.
Azure external load balancer / Internet load balancer
Azure internal load balancer

Azure uses a reserved IP which is accessible from the internet, whereas AWS uses EIP – Elastic IP.

Azure has Express Route, AWS has Direct Connect.

Azure File Storage uses SMB 3.0 whereas AWS EFS uses NFS v4.1.
