Video description

8+ Hours of Video Instruction

Takes the ambiguity out of the Microsoft cloud by showing how to make various Microsoft cloud solutions, including Azure, Office 365, and Exchange Server 2016 among others, work together with each other and with resources in the local datacenter.

Overview

This video is completely hands on, starting at square one and showing everything you need to do to deploy each environment correctly and to establish seamless functionality between the environments.

  • Explains how to link all of Microsoft’s major cloud platforms together and make them work seamlessly with resources in the local datacenter.
  • Covers identity federation, which is a major issue for organizations that use multiple clouds.
  • Teaches methods for managing resources such as users, devices, and applications in multi-cloud environments, and explains how those methods differ from those used in a traditional Windows Server environment.
